Not saying I regret the trade, just that it may not have been as lopsided as we all want to believe.
It was a good hockey trade, nobody destroyed anybody. We got a badly needed potential #1C in Hodgson, and Gillis got a very badly needed top-6 bruiser PF with upside in Kassian. I will say we won based on the Grags/Sulzer swap, but not destroyed by any means.

Foligno is NOT as aggressive or physical as Kassian, but I feel he has a higher ceiling offensively.
