You know what, let me find the threads for you:

Boston Bruins Board from June 2009:

Nearly all the Bruins fans are celebrating how bad the Habs are going to be, no hindsight required

Edmonton Oilers board from June 2009:

Mostly recognizing it as a good trade for NYR

Montreal fans on a different hockey board criticizing the trade in June 2009:

And finally, from this very board:

Nearly everybody knew it was a bade trade at the time except your beloved professionals.
Best quote in the gomez thread:

Gomez may be a big bargaining chip to lure some the Sedins or another play to MTL via UFA
