It was a waste simply because the only reason we had to cut that deal was because Holmgren completely and utterly failed to create a serviceable NHL defense corps. If you go back and look at that defensive roster in training camp, it was absolutely pathetic. Even I, easily the most out front and harshest critic of John Stevens, gave him a pass on that front because Holmgren had failed so hard in constructing the roster that summer.

It was a waste, because with a bit of attention to the defensive roster that summer we would not have been in a position where we needed to burn a pick on a depth D.
