They traded for a guy no whom no one else could accommodate nor afford to gamble on. There's a huge difference.

Easy gamble or not but if you can't give credit for a trade that got us an elite goalie and gave up a failed prospect and a low pick, then there's something wrong with you.

If you call Ribeiro for Niinimaa an "easy gamble" I'm gonna lose it.
