I was laughed off another forum for panning that trade as it happened. The only thing that came to justifying the trade was that an overpayment was necessary. When I heard that there was a snag that kept the trade from being filed, I was happy. Turned out that it was just Gillis deciding which first rounder he was going to give up.

I think people remember well that Hamhuis' rights were traded twice. The scuttlebutt (at least around these parts) was that he wanted to come here to play.
