I'm not really sure what your argument is.

If trading for a 26 year old Captain who Captain his team to a Stanley Cup final just a year prior who has Selke caliber defense is hardly a risk, how does that reflect negatively on the acquiring general manager?

I'll take a GM who can acquire the type of player you described risk-free, over one that potentially compromises the future of a team only to hopefully accomplish the exact same thing. Should Lombardi have parted with more assets for Richards in order to call himself a risk-taker?
