These were good trades IMO.

Maxwell is a fringe NHL talent who had no role on the teams; for him we got an emergency defender in Sopel who helped us in the playoffs even if things didn't work out as we hoped; he was flawed but he did a decent job replacing Gorges. Dawes was a replacement, if not an upgrade for the Bulldogs, and his scoring helped our prospects get some good playoff experience.

The Lapierre trade was not a good one but he forced his way out, and Mcyntire also ended up being a big part of the Bulldogs success. Just because him and Dawes are gone doesn't mean they didn't contribute; they helped develop a winning culture in Hamilton that helped our prospects.
