Getting lucky is not something you can plan for. "Serious damage" in the playoffs means zero unless you win a cup as far as giving up prospects is concerned. Hossa was a pure rental so I would've been super pissed off giving up any of those three without winning a cup. And I don't think Hossa would've given us one. He didn't manage to win one even with Crosby at his side.

What do you mean by serious damage? Is it a 2nd round or 3rd round exit? Is it losing in the finals? Seriously man, if you don't win a cup then the move is brutal.

It's easy to say this now because we wasted McD elsewhere. What if it had been PK or Max? Would it have been worth it?

No.
