Trading Rivet cost us a playoff spot in 2007, would you still make the trade?

Losing Rivet mean more ice time to Janne Niinimaa
, Niinimaa was -5 over the 10 games he played after the trade (1 assist). I dont think rivet was that bad.
(Niinima played more than gorges after the trade.)
Niinimaa was much better than Rivet was!! Janne didn't get the icetime he deserved that season....when he did get a chance to play more, his game improved a lot....his stats might not have agreed, but he made better choices and plays on the ice.
