You don't do this if you have any kind of long term plan.
Who gives a crap? Seriously man. So we save on the cap space... we still wasted a valuable asset on a lateral move. Again, this was a desperate trade by a guy trying fruitlessly to save his job.
As for the 2nd, sure it's an asset. But it's not something we should be happy with when we're giving away Mike Cammaleri. That 2nd rounder has about a 25-30% chance of even becoming an NHL player. That's fine if you're trading away Hal Gill but not Cammy.
Like I said in another thread, I think your expectations on the returns our players will garner is too high. You have to keep in mind we're selling low. If the Sabres trade Roy now they are also most likely going to be selling low.
