Not saying that this was the GM's mindset but they took a risk for sure and did it work? no way in hell. Does it work? Yes and this separates good GM's from the bad and sadly as much as I like Gainey this proved that he was not the right guy running the show in Montreal.

Things tend to even themselves out though as we won a trade when we got mac pac and gorges for rivet. Based on talent alone ant not contracts we won that trade more than NY won the Gomez trade.
