Trading Gomez/Bourque/Kaberle away is sound asset management........regardless of what part of the season it happens. Poor asset management by Gauthier (Gainey) is the reason we have those three money sucking failures on our team.
Nowhere in my opening post did I suggest Budaj should get 40 starts. I am not for "intentional losing".

If there were intentional losing, it would be done by the coach. Therrien will do his best to win games. My opening post and all subsequent posts were from the perspective of what Bergevin is doing and should be doing going forward.

Finally, I don't consider Kaberle a money-sucking failure. I think if we play our cards right we can fetch a good return for him.
