He had no control over Schultz, Lupul was expendable because he had no place in the line up when he came back, and Gardiner was thought to be expandable in BM's eyes because we had Schultz, Fowler, Vatanen, and Sbisa.

That year we could had made a serious run if Hiller was healthy and if we actually had another top 4 dman. Thats why we got Beauch, and he was a logical choice since he knew Carlyle's system already and it would make an easy transition.

Lets say Lubo, Lydman, and Hiller all got injured before he made the trade, NO WAY does BM make the trade. But if having those guys be healthy and have another top 4 dman, the Ducks could have made it past the 1st and 2nd round.
