Sure, but none of that precludes a better return. Somewhere along the line DW screwed up and showed his cards because that is the only explanation for cap dumping a good offensive defensemen who a short time later got a HUGE contract in free agency.

Ehrhoff should have got at least a 1st round pick, DW got screwed, we'll never know how or why most likely.
