Without him, and without getting a significant return in the form of a top 6 forward plus picks, I think the teams chances at the cup in the next 4 years is less than 10% altogether (2.5% chance a year), but still might have been somewhere around 6% a year with good compensation. So yeah, to me it looks like we have reduced cup chances overall with our handling of the situation.
Yikes, I don't know what to say except I am glad you are not our GM.
The goal of hockey is to win games, not hoard assets.
