We were a legitimate Stanley Cup contender at the start of 2008-09, and strengthening that by giving up Grabovski was a good move.

Pateryn has bottom pairing potential.
If you look at that trade we lost a 2nd line center, 2nd line winger, top 4 defenseman, a legit #1 goalie.

The only thing of value we got out of that was Lars Eller. One half a season of Robert Lang, injury or not, is not justifiable. Losing Streit and trading Sergei for nothing is unforgivable. Halak trade was the only good trade of them all.
