Oh yeah, thanks for Steen.
The Leafs have made several questionable trades in recent years.
Everyone automatically points at the Kessel deal..which may not be a great deal, also the Rask/Raycroft deal was terrible.

That being said, the Kessel deal, we picked up a point producer and elite scoring winger, for 3 draft picks, no one knew what they would have been.

Rask was a young, unproven drafted player exchanged for a former Calder trophy winner who had a bad year in Andrew Raycroft.

The deal that really sticks out for me is the Steen/Colaiacovo for Stempniak deal. We gave up 2 young, decently promising players in exchange for a player who scored 27 goals once. That trade hurt us IMO.
Steen is a big forward who can score goals. Not sure what he's been like at centre for the Blues, but I do understand he can play both the pivot and wing.

OUCH.
