If we had done this, we would have lost our best defensive forward, we wouldn't have JVR, we would be going into next season with a center group of Bozak-Connolly-Lombardi-Steckel, (if you believe the Reimer rumours as well, we would be going into the season with Scrivens as the #1 goalie), and we would have been throwing the white towel in the ring while we were winning the fight last year.

All so we could get a chance to pick prospects that we could hope become the players we just traded, that slid for a reason in a relatively weak draft. We now have the option to keep them and not trade away positions of need, or trade them like we did Schenn for a lot more value than a late first round pick.

I find it hilarious how people on this board think they know better than the collective minds of all NHL GMs and scouts.
