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

It was every game in the season that we didnt earn at least a point that cost us the playoff. The last game of the season didnt impact the ranking more than any other games.
I was well aware that Montreal finished the season on a good streak without Rivet, it happen often, even when team doesn't a make a move at all.
Thats why i suggested to study the historical impact of deadline trades: we need a big samples, a 17 games sample is too small a sample, one example doesn't make the rule.
Beside, you might be interested to know that with Rivet as their #01 defenseman, San Jose had a 13-3-4 record, improved from a 1.30ppg team to a 1.76ppg team.
