You're limited in your options so it's a take it or leave it situation. This is very similar to when we acquired Brian Campbell for Rostislav Olesz. A huge contract for a player with a NTC going to a team with a limited budget. It's easy to say we needed a guy like Campbell a lot more than we need Roberto.

Why would we ever give up anything substantial when we don't even need him? Goaltending is not an issue for us and we have the best prospect in the game ready to go next season.
