I'm not that upset with the trade, we needed a top 4 Dman, at the time we had Lilja and Sutton those two wouldn't get us to playoffs. So BM set out to get one and he chose Beauch probably because it will be an easier adjustment switching teams in midseason. Lupul was coming off an injury and yes I loved the guy but our roster didn't really have room for him. Lupul would have been on the third line where as in Toronto he's on your first. So I'm happy for Loops for that reason. Then Gardiner yes he would have been great to have but we have Schultz that was his partner in college that was the only defenseman nominated for the Hobey Baker Award. With having young Dman like Fowler, Sbisa, Vatanen, and Schultz so we had the luxury to trade Gardiner.
