As are most moves at the deadline. It's why I always say the time to make a move is the off season. That being said, what this shows is Shero's willingness to make a bold move and go for it. He could easily stand pat and wait for Malkin to get healthy and roll with what he's currently got, but he's not. He's making changes. Adding in players who fill specific needs that the team currently lacks. Smart move. It also shows the players that he's willing to do what's needed to win right now, and that he views them as a legit contender.
