I would have gone after Pavelski and Derek Roy (which GMGM actually had done IRL) before Ribeiro but I still would have done it. It was pretty obvious Johanssons' value was at its peak this past offseason which was why he needed to be traded even if they weren't going to get "full value" for him before the predicted rapid depreciation of his value this season.

I didn't have too much of a problem with Eakin getting traded because Ribeiro was going to be a better 2C than Eakin this season. The only problem with that trade was that it likely meant Johansson was staying on the roster. Eakin was physically overmatched but hadn't shown signs of being mentally overmatched like Johansson.
