And Higgins gave us Prust, while the $$$ saved on Gomez allowed us to sign Gaborik. Amazing trade. I know McGuire isn't the most popular person on these boards , but I remember listening to him after this trade & he was trying to be respectful of the trade
but basically said the HAbs blew this big time. This trade defined the upcoming years for both franchises. What a trade can do !!!!
