I was mad then and still hate the deal now. I knew that Forsberg was going to be a star (OK KNEW is maybe a strong word, but when a 17 year old can get darn near a point a game in the SEL as a 17 year old that is impressive) and loved Ricci (remember how good he was as an 18 year old?). I thought too much was given up for a guy that "refused" to play for another team. Some of the other pieces like the money and the guys like Huffman were not a big deal to me but the two guys I mentioned were a blow and I didn't like the sheer size of the package that was needed to get him. I have always hated deals that give up tremendous amounts for one guy. As long as one of the others traded for him turns out to be great it makes the deal not so hot.
