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.
Its a dumb ass trade. Dont need hindsight, foresight or outta sight to figure that out.
Much like the Greene + Stoll for Visnovsky was a dumba ass trade, this idea is even worse than that.
And Mactavish is just figuring out now that the Vis deal was a bad one.
Whatever, I will watch and laugh.
Schenn last year was no better than Gilbert at his worst.
And we definitely dont need that.
Especially at 3.6 for five years or whatever his stupid contract is.
