Do you remember what the Edmonton Oilers got for trading Mark Messier? I don't and I remember when it happened. Think about that for a second.
Harry Frazee of the Boston Red Sox sold players to pay for his theatre and one of them was Babe Ruth to the New York Yankees. That blunder hurt the Red Sox for generations.
Milbury is the king of dumb.
The Messier trade is different. It's a forced trade kind of like the Roy one. Very bad deals but they were at least forced.
This is an unforced error where you're pissing off another team and giving away a number one (possibly top five) in a deep, deep draft. Plus a third rounder to boot.
Epic, classic, fail.
Really, really too bad Colorado matched. This would've been worse than any move I can think of just for the sheer stupidity of it.
