We'd go from:

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

Boynton/Leddy - Campbell

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.
I wan't implying I thought he shouldn't have been moved. Just that that's out there if anyone wants to go there.

Where the return on Ladd was what it was - and I don't think anyone can realistically blame Stan for the return. A high 2nd is more than I expected back at the time.
