2011, Washington didnt draft until the fourth round so they basically chucked that years draft. Speed bump in the prospect pipeline. Gambled on going further in the playoffs and it didnt work out.

Probably regretting it now.
..They took Forsberg and Wilson in 2012 in the first round, so I doubt he regretted the trade ... Now if Danault is as good as I hope he will be then that is a different story.
