What I know is:
We need to trade for key pieces.
Aulie was a tradeable asset.
Instead of trading him for key pieces, we traded him for a player that might be very good for us, but not for a year or two.
So yeah - I didn't like the trade then, and I don't like the trade now.
Would you rather trade Aulie for a prospect, or trade him in a package to land a goaltender/center?
