Unfortunate but true, just ask around the league.
Agreed Arsenault.

Sudbury has a nucleus of 2 to 3 good lines for next year, as I have discussed previously and they will have to lose their fab 5 now via trade, and sacrifice the 2nd half of the season, but it will help them tremendously next year.

Alot more quality time for the remaining 94s and 95s, along with some playing time for possible kids like Vilardi, Leblanc, Peters, Poulin Roy, Cummins, DeHaan, etc... will definitely strengthen their team for next year's run.

The trades can provide imediate help for next year in the form of 94s and 95s, and some much needed draft picks to secure OAs and possibly a #1 goalie.

Make the moves BS, and think of next year and not this year. We will still make playoffs this year, and who knows, the East is up for the taking.
