It doesn't matter. He's gone, he's not an Oiler. Move on.

Now you have to say that "people thought the Brule trade was awesome", honestly what's the point? So that in hindsight you were right and people were wrong?

good on ya.
Its not important that I'm right, its important that the org was dead wrong.

Also its relevant and I discuss it occasionally as part of the theme here that people are always tired of the outgoing player here and prefer the incoming player. No matter how bad the exchange. Torres-Brule just being a classic example of the dynamic.

The other thing is people tend to prefer the prospect with assumed greater potential than the guys that are actually known quantities. Thats an odd one because I'd rather have the established player in vast majority of instances. But this particular board is heavy on prefering the prospect side of things.

I bring up examples from time to time to dispel the notions.
