It was a bad trade. I think Pleau was counting on a little more out of Bure, hoping he would return from injury sooner and chemistry w/ Weight. Neither happened and the Blues dumped Bure...

VAn ryn was a good prospect, but fell out of favor (rightly or wrongly w/Q) He has been passed on the depth chart by Backman and Walker).

In the end the Blues took a risk and wound up losers, (We do get a 5th rounder in the next draft - due to not keeping Bure)...
