I think that Neal still would have been traded even if Dallas had drafted Fowler. Dallas desperately needed defensive help that season and the creditors wanted the team to make the playoffs in order to make money. They couldn't wait for Fowler to develop. Neal was the most valuable roster player that could realistically be moved.

The only thing that really bothers me about the Campbell pick is that taking goalies in the first round is a huge risk. Passing on Kulikov in order to draft Glennie is the decision that really bothers me.
