I was furious when we traded for Lindros giving up on Brendl... look at how well that one worked out for Pavel. Only the Korpikoski trade really sticks in my mind of us giving up a kid and getting a straight dog back is Lisin who has no hockey IQ at all. I really am not too surprised with this move, I wish we could have gotten more back for Grachev, but maybe they are really really high on Fogarty?
