And you clearly don't seem to understand the value of cap space, which is legitimate. In the NBA, cap space is typically the prime consideration of one side of any trade. It's going to be very similar in the NHL, if it's not already.
It was a reasonable gamble, in theory, to trade for Booth, but it didn't work, and that ultimately lands on the shoulders of our GM.
They wanted to shed cap, we wanted to acquire a top 6 player.
Was worth it IMO.Hasn't worked out.
We took a chance to fill a top 6 position, without using our big trading piece in Schneider.
Not every move is gonna be a homerun.
