I was all for this trade when it was first mentioned. I thought Tanguay would be a great addition to the young Bruins forwards. After Thornton and Samsonov, there really wasn't any one else who was relatively young with high potential (now there is Bergeron)

Skoula was an after thought in my mind. Since McLaren wasn't going to be playing for Boston ever again, it would be nice to have an NHL defenceman to take his spot.

However things have changed. McLaren was traded for Jillson. Jeff has played great for Boston so far. Better than I was expecting..a lot better. And Lapointe has been a huge help in the development of Bergeron. Patrice was (he might still be) living with Lapointe. And for the first time, Lapointe has been producing and playing like he was with Detroit. Before he was trying to justify his huge contract and getting himself injured too often.

I'm not sure if i would still do it today...but Tanguay is so tempting.

I've also been wondering how McLaren has been doing in San Jose. I haven't heard a thing. Is that good or bad?
