Wideman doesn't add depth on the blueline. He's a runt and a net negative. In the 20 games after the trade deadline he scored just 8 points (none on the pp despite leading all dmen in pp toi) and was a -5.

He has been putrid in the playoffs and been on the ice for nearly every Bruins goal.

This isn't a hindsight thing. Nearly everyone wanted him sold. Not just for the potential return, but because he makes the team worse when he plays.
