Emotionally, it's hard to beat the Roy trade...
But the reality is that we did get 2 players back who were good for us.
Chelios and Ribs trades we got less than 1 season of a retirement bound player in return, Mcdo/Higgins trade we got one decent season followed by 2 sub-mediocre cap nightmare seasons.
Factor in the context of why the trades happened, and I'd call the Mcdo trade public enemy #1.
- no need for the trade
- terrible return (depreciating AND brutal cap hit)
- giving up an asset that is just getting better and better
