always hated that trade. don't buy that Korpi would have bolted to Europe because he was still on the 4th line in just in rookie season. He would have gotten similar ice time over Lisin last year, probably more since Korpi would have probably gotten some PK time, similar to his numbers in PHX. This season, he would have had to outplay someone in camp to get the spot. That is hard to say how that would have gone down, but coaching has shown the best players in camp tend to get their roster spots. He would have possibly competed with Fedotenko or Avery's spot and then later, probably have taken Frolov's spot when he went down in bizzaro NHL. I just hated the trade because it was pointless. Sure Lisin scored some goals in PHX but it seemed like he was such the wrong fit for us in so many ways. Why give up on Korpedo? He still skates like the dickens and plays good defense.
