There's a limit to refuse giving up assets to get a good player who can boost your team. There's also quite a margin between selling the farm, and giving your players a giant "**** you" by not helping their chances in the playoffs.
You're assuming Bergevin didn't try. We don't know the details behind the competing bids, so for the moment I won't blame him for what he didn't do.

If there is a trade expect it to happen tomorrow, probably. We're in the middle of a game as I type this, so nothing's being completed right now (save the Cammalleri jokes please).

But if the worst-case scenario means we have Tinordi and Beaulieu on D, that ain't too bad. At some point - maybe sooner than we think - they'll be much better than all these 2nd and 3rd-pairing defensemen we're trying so hard to get through trades.

And if all we need then is size, teach Blunden to fight.
