Trading for Kari wasn't a risk. It was like being given a free lottery ticket. Kari wasn't under a long term or expensive contract, and Nieuwy gave up next to nothing to get him. If Kari was unable to stay healthy, it wouldn't have mattered at all.

The Neal trade was a big risk. Nieuwy had a few good young forwards and no good young d-men, so he tried to turn a forward into a d-man, and he missed big time. Damn shame.
