A 2nd rounder for a 2nd pairing rental is about as normal a deadline deal as they come, especially for a team that thinks it has a great chance at a cup, which McPhee had to have thought at the time. So it didn't work out? Most don't...
That's why I liked the Arnott trade. He was something along the lines of what we needed. Corvo really wasn't, IMHO. A rental should be that missing piece. Corvo was another offensively oriented puck moving D-man on an already juggernaut offense.
