Said it perfect!
The younger of the Primeau's has been a laughing stock for years. Now he's a top third line player? Wrong brother! Tough yes, but he'll be gone in a few years.
Sturm has great wheels but has been underachieving since he broke his leg. To top it off he's never had more than 50 pts! Brad Stuart...........well let's just say he's been riding the Brad Stuart name card over anything! I'd take Visnovsky over Stuart if I was a fan of any other team. Stuart had great defense around him, a-la Calgary and great goaltending.
San Jose got robbed..........slice it any way you want. Other teams including us could have given a better package...
