The Chelios trade was a risk, many thought they were overpaying for a player of his age by trading Anders Eriksson and a first rounder.

Trading Sean Avery and a first for Mathieu Schneider was seen as a risk.

Trading for Brendan Shanahan was a risk, you think dean would trade a Center (Primeau) and a D-Man (Coffey) for a winger (or passenger as SF calls them) in Shanahan?

Now I'm not saying Dean should go trade all our first round picks for veterans, but Holland is much more of a gambler than DL.

If DL were a poker player he would be known as a nit.
LOL so then you must rate Dave Taylor above Ken Holland, as if your only candidate for risk is to trade 1st rounders, and proven players for unproven players...my god...really?

THAT is what you call risky?

Then why isn't the Smyth trade considered a "risk", or the "Sturm" trade a risk??
