I don't know of one single supporter of that trade. Everyone had reservations from day 1.
The reality is that even smart moves don't always turn out the way you hoped. The future is not as predictable as many of us seem to think. Hindsight tends to be a lot clearer.
Some of the smartest hockey minds seem to think moving down has merit. This is certainly an interesting situation and I think it is almost impossible to be open minded and have a strong opinion in this case.
The haters are going to bash Tambo for thinking about it. If he does nothing, they will call him Mr Dithers. The blind supporters will fall in line no matter what happens.
I was hoping they would draft Yakupov but that may not happen so I guess it is time to be open minded about the possibility of a risky trade.
