On the other hand, the Leafs botched what should've been a longer rebuild in hopes of skipping ahead and getting back into the playoff picture quickly. This year might be the first year they actually do get into the playoffs and it might also be the last year of Kessel in Toronto. Pretty terrible results from that trade.
In terms of what each team was trying to achieve, the Habs got way more out of the Gomez deal. He was very good in the second half of his first season with us as well as in the playoffs.
That said... The Gomez trade is worse. Probably the worst trade since Millbury.
