i can't resist

Espo was a high draft pick? and his stock started falling almost immediately. His scoring dropped and He was left of WJC team. He was already being labeled a bust when he was traded.
Pysyk was a high draft pick, and his stock started going up almost immediately as he began dominating juniors, leading his team in the playoffs, and winning a WJC medal

Christensen was coming off an 18 goal season? Stafford has 3 20 goal seasons and is a proven top 6 NHLer.

Armstrong is a decent 3rd liner? Girgensons was just drafted 14th overall

Your proposal was god awful... recognize.

The closer equivalent of your proposal (from a Pitt perspective) would've been :
Ryan Malone
Alex Goligoski
Jordan Staal

That's how bad your proposal was.... that the massive overpayment i posted from Pitt, is MUCH closer to your Buffalo proposal, than the actual Hossa trade.

You proposed a asset decimating trade for a playoff rental... congrats! Job well done
