Seguin and Hamilton are nice, but Boston may have traded away a three-peat.
If we still had Kessel we woudlnt have gotten Horton. Kessels better than Horton, but to think we would have "steamrolled" Montreal with Kessel instead of taking them to game 7 with Horton then you're delusional. Kessel had 11 more points than Horton that year.

Only questionable trade is the Kaberle trade and the only reason its questionable is a player the Leafs traded up to get (Biggs). At the same time tho, 99% of Bruins fans don't regret the trade, incudling me. Colborne hasnt shown much at this point and had no place in our organization.
