I think they traded Zubov more because they felt he had a weakness that was going to be continually exposed by the increase in physical play, more than trading him for what they thought the return would be. As we all know, it was a mistake. Never should have been done. Too late now. I'd trade MDZ in a package for Stastny, not for Richards.
Exactly the kind of a trade that would potentially make sense for THIS team. Stastny may never become the player that Richards is now...but he fits the blueprint of the team much much more closely.
