Why is it lateral?

Because we don't get a silly 1st rounder?

There was no strawman. You ASSERTED that a 1st rounder/prospect is superior to Bourque/2nd/prospect.

Simple deduction would clearly show that you value a 1st rounder more than Bourque.

Why does this trade mean win now? This is no more in the now than a 1st rounder, Bourque is signed for 4 years.
