As for Boyle, Purcell and Moulson, I don't recall to many fans being upset when they left, but now that we have hindsight it's easy to throw the darts at DL. There were plenty of people applauding DL for getting a 3rd for Boyle, and some even said it was addition by subtraction to trade away Purcell. Moulson, I doubt if anyone shed much of a tear when he left either, in fact I don't recall even one post dedicated to whether or not he should be kept.
I was one of a few posters here who said time and again that both Boyle and Moulson were treated incorrectly and that they would go on to be solid NHLers (or at least I believed so). Purcell is still a middle of the road guy but the deal that sent him to TB turned out to be a bad one for us and I had nothing to say about it. I suppose it could be argued that the TB deal was alright with Modin playing well and Halpern having the potential to have at least given an NHL effort but both points are arguable.
As to how we dealt with Moulson and Boyle, we made mistakes but it absolutely happens to every team. There were a few posters here who weren't happy about what happened with both of these kids though, of that you can be sure.
