I don't understand why we move players like this and glorify players like Smid/Fistric/N.Schultz - who have the worst kind of one-dimensional play you can have as a defenseman. Zero transition ability and constantly stunning whatever momentum we have with their lack of passing/skating ability.
Pitkanen wasn't happy here, Visnovsky requested a trade and Souray.... Well, ya know so that's why they were moved.
Amazingly enough, the only thing that Tambellini had to show for trading those 3 is Whitney. Oh, that Tambo.
