Lastly, Stempniak isn't garbage. He had two top6 level seasons under his belt when he was traded...
I wasn't implying that Bozak was going to produce like Steen, I was only looking at the turn around in his Corsi performance. Steen started in the league earlier, so producing at an earlier age and rounding out his defensive game earlier makes sense, no? It took Steen longer than 200 games to figure it out, that's for sure.
Colaiacovo was still a promising 26 year old defensemen when they got traded, Steen had 4 points in 20 games when he got dealt, I thought he was a throw in.
