At the time of the trade, one objection was why you'd let Kuba go and be forced to trade an asset (Foligno) to replace him. If you consider Latendresse as Foligno's replacement (possibly debatable), this is what we have now:

Methot + Latendresse + $$$ vs Kuba + Foligno

So instead of re-signing Kuba as a FA, we replaced him with Methot and replaced Foligno with a FA. Probably a richer team could have made a bigger upgrade in FA, but if you consider the cost saving here, the trade-off doesn't look too bad on paper (for now).
