Aulie is now Ashton too...so meh.
Hagman was coming off a thirty POINT season. He's never scored 30 goals. White looked good in Toronto, but his value was grossly overstated. Stajan flopped completely in Calgary. Overall the value they got back for a player of Phaneuf's pedigree was absolutely terrible. If we make a similar trade I would certainly hope that Aquilini has the sense to fire Gillis before he continues to demolish this team.
