Assuming the Flames were actually cup contenders, had a shot to go deep into the playoffs and not only had a hole on the LW, but believed a player like Brown would put them over the top? The required price, of course. And if that necessitated a first round, then so be it.

Winning the cup is what the game is all about, not a picking a prospect that may or may not pan out. Do Kings fans regret trading a first for Carter last season? What if Carter had been a UFA and walked last summer, would they regret that trade still? The correct answer is no, of course not, since it got them the cup.
