The closest Canes fans know that they overpaid badly for the Staal brothers. But that team is great at reclamation projects. Look what they did with
Pitkanen, Whitney, Ruutu, etc. They turn these after-thoughts into consistent, valuable contributors.
Semin was never an after-thought - just a gamble. And they took it and won. Don't try to criticize a move that has worked 100% in their favour.
Not going to get into the trade but where do you get this stuff?? Pitkanen was always a good D. The only glitch in his career was when he was with the Oilers. Whitney was a good player long before he came to the Hurricanes.
