I was never happy with the value he got out of trades. He never struck me as a good negotiator. Many of his trades turned out good in hindsight but I can not remember a deal besides maybe Downie, and the McGinn deal where I liked the return we got. He is pretty good at buying low and our NHL scouting seems to be pretty good but I always felt that he should have gotten more for Liles or paid less for Varly ,etc.

And in this situation we have not as much leverage as in the McGinn or Downie trade. So I just could see that he wants this mess solved and wants one of his mancrushes in return while discounting better other offers...
Maybe I am wrong. Maybe I am right. I am no fan of Sherman right now so maybe I am overreacting. We will see..
