I don't see what's so horrible. It's a dollar-for-dollar trade in total contracts and brings in a (right handed) center that should replace Langkow's production + and adds a forward prospect with NHL potential, something the Yotes are short on. If they like what they see, they can try to re-sign Connolly at a number that fits. If not, he's added to the Langkow/Belanger/Lang pile of one (playoff run) and done Yote veteran centers.

10 months ago, during the heat of a playoff race, Summers and Stone auditioned for the 3rd pairing.

From everything I've seen since then, they've done nothing to show any signs of regression. But maybe you've caught a few more Portland games and seen something? Depth wise, there's still Rundblad, Schlemko and Gormley.

Sullivan/Hanzal/Vrbata
Boedker/Vermette/Doan
Korpikoski/Connolly/Moss
Torres/Gordon/Chipchura
Bizz/Johnson

Yandle/Morris
OEL/Michalek
Summers/Stone
Schlemko
