I can only imagine the reaction here if Gauthier (or Bergevin, or anyone) traded Pacioretty and Subban to another team, and that team went on to win the Cup. I'm sure people would be calling him a "heck of a GM" like Holmgren.
He traded them because they could not win in Philly - as opposed to hanging on to assets too long and getting nothing in return for them.
