Anyone else glad we traded Setoguchi?

I'll miss that sweet right handed one-timed.
It was like we had Iginla on the team
If we had an Iginla on the team, we would not have traded him, or held onto Coyle from the package. Iginla ACTUALLY elevates the puck and actually roofs it.
Seto's one timer wasn't special. It was merely acceptable. If you inspect it further, you'd notice that he had this amazing ability to NEVER find the soft spots in the slot. It was like if you going to pass it to him for a one timer, you'd have to hope that it actually gets there. If it got there, you'd be lucky if it didn't get blocked or go wide.
This is what makes it plainly obvious that Seto isn't going to become a consistant 30 goal scorer. Compare him to Couture or even Heatley, they found the soft spots pretty much anywhere and got better scoring chances on a more consistant basis.
