Kovalev for Balej was a win. Same with the Rivet trade. Wiz was a pretty good trade. But to CLEARLY win it...you need a loser. Who knows if the Isles didn't get a great player in Sundstrom?

I know that I might change my mind if we'd happen to keep our players for like 1 full year for a top pick....but we don't seem to be there yet.

With that in mind....there are good news. We still didn't lose the Ribeiro trade....who knows if Andrew Conboy won't end up as the next Chris Neil....Or we might not have lost the Grabovski trade....Greg Pateryn might be the next Scott Stevens....

And even then it's not like we would have chosen him necessarily so we can't base it on that. We could still have gotten a good player even if the team we traded the pick to chooses a bust.
