It was a business decision, not a hockey decision. Thankfully, beyond what we likely would have gotten for Wideman, I don't think it will hurt us that bad. Frankly, it might force Ted/George to make a splashy free agent signing. If they choose wisely, that could work out nicely.
Well I was kind of hoping they'd do the right thing by hockey and PR. Sell the valuables now (ex-Semin)... look bad. Likely still reach playoffs in 8th. Make playoff money. Blame injuries. Start next season on high note with draft picks, then sign splash UFA Suter.

Dare to dream.... dare to dream!
