Timonen and Hartnell were both going to be lost to free agency. They traded them before they lost the rights for a draft pick that they had already traded to Philly for Forsberg. You could argue they "got an asset" but a late first (one of which they had already traded) for two excellent players is the type of asset management that would be absolutely trashed on here.
They're also a budget team and were forced to rebuild after 06-07 because of that.
This team would probably in great shape if the team had tried to rebuild around McD-Subban-Price instead of handcuffing itself to a bunch of second rate players on pricey, long-term deals.
There's a massive difference in the competence of our front office and theirs. They might have to rebuild on the fly next year if they lose Suter and/or Weber, but you have to think it's going to be done a lot better than what we're going to see over here for the next few years.
