Looking back at the Chiarlitti trade (Conditional 5th, 2013 10th, 2015 2nd) and comparing it to this Hottot trade, I either think:
a) JB got great value for Hottot, considering the situation
b) Sarnia deserved more in the Chiarlitti deal.
Everyone hated to see Chiarlitti dealt but it was a move that made the most sense to recoup a few assets (draft picks were needed).
I think both of those are accurate. I would have liked to have seen Sarnia get a bit more in return for Chiarlitti, but Hottot is a good player, for as much may be going on up in his head. The 10th rounder that they got for Nathan is the only drawback to that deal for Sarnia, especially considering the 5th is conditional.
