I am a Bruins fan and just off the top of my head I can think of worse trades than any of those made by Boston, Vancouver, New York Rangers, Chicago, Toronto, and who could forget the many Mad Mike Milbury gems where if he had only held onto his prospects I seriously have to wonder if the Islanders would have won a Cup in the last 10 years. Chara, Spezza, Luongo, Bertuzzi, McCabe, Berard, Osgood, it goes on and on and on.
The real answer to the team with the worst trades is the Islanders and Mike Milbury in particular.
When you throw in trading JP Dumont, waiving Martin Straka after 6 weeks and drafting DiPietro instead of Heatley or Gaborik and you right, the Isles would have been a powerhouse and perhaps have won a Cup or two. But Mad Mike had to be smarter than everyone else.
