Other players like who? The only player that could have been traded instead of Ladd was Hjalmarsson.. and then that would have left a huge hole on defense in 2010-11.

We'd go from:

Keith - Seabrook
Hammer - Campbell
Leddy - Boynton/Cullimore/Campoli/Hendry

to:

Keith - Seabrook
Boynton/Leddy - Campbell
Boynton/Leddy - Cullimore/Hendry/Campoli

I hope by "other players" you weren't referring to Sharp.. as the backlash, with him being as good a lockerroom guy as he is, the post-season he was coming off of and with him being a huge fan favourite would have been huge.

Nor could you have traded Bolland, because he was also coming off a great post-season, was/is also a fan favourite and that would have left you with only one natural centre on your roster for 2010-11, that being Toews.
