Modin was finished as a hockey player. Even if he hadn't been injured, he wasn't capable of contributing anything.
how the **** was the Regehr trade for immediate help? Butler is 24 years old and has proven himself able to be a top 4 defenseman and Byron is a close to NHL ready prospect who appears to have decent upside. The 2nd was to dump Kotalik (or get Byron back depending how you look at the trade)

and Langkow for Stempniak was brilliant. we shed tons of cap space and didn't lose anything offensively. as for Langkow being our best center, that is laughable to say the least. Jokinen is much better than Langkow
