I'm not saying it was a great trade, but it wasn't as bad as the immediate reaction made it seem.
We actually signed rinne with the $7 mill we got back with that trade. It's kinda like our Joe Thornton trade except on a way smaller scale. People think Boston got reamed but then they turn around and sign Savard and Chara.
