When your a 6th, 7th or 8th place team with 3 "elite/above average" players in the league that are for certain not coming back (Percy, DeMelo signed and Brace OA) it is almost essential to get something for them. I understand the east is tight but figure it out Boyd, these guys could fetch quite a bit and he did nothing. I'm a season ticket holder and could care less if they have Percy cutouts all around Mississauga. Trust me ill be sad when Brace goes but getting nothing for Percy and DeMelo, espcially with the year dylan is having is a complete and utter mistake.
If you add what we could have had from trades plus Bourne, MacIntyre, Martin, Burnside. Then your looking at something easier to build around. It's gotta be a thumbs down for me the past 2 trade deadlines and offseasons for Boyd. If your rebuilding and not recuperating young players/draft picks in a two season span you set yourself up for a lot worse in the later years.
You must have misunderstood, this is exactly what I was saying that he should have given up one or a couple of those guys you name. My point about it not mattering was that if he kept them to win games, it didn't really matter because although they won last night, their winning numbers aren't so great right now anyways. Maybe by bringing in new blood it would have given the team some renewed energy.
I completely agree with you on this!
