Every trade is about team needs. The Jackets needed a franchise center, so they decided to try to acquire Carter. The Kings needed someone to take the pressure off of Kopitar down the middle, so they acquired Richards. The Kings were last in the league in scoring, so they acquired Carter. The Leafs need a gamebreaking center, so they'll be in on Staal. Etcetera. I'd hope every GM is trying to make trades based on team needs.
