I'm blown away that Slats and Gorton actually shook up the team this much. Blown away.

However, there is a LOT of upside in this deal. Moore has 2nd pairing upside. Phenomenal skater who can really move the puck. Brassard has been coveted by the Rangers for a while now. Great vision and skill, he's just fallen into a rut in Columbus. If he can get himself back on track, he's a potential #2 center who fits in very nicely behind Stepan.

Dorsett will be a fan favorite after his first game here. Dude is a warrior and brings the same kind of game Prust did.

You can't lump the Nash deal in with this one and say "Oh we traded x, y and z for 1 2 and 3! This sucks!" It doesn't work like that. Gaborik's value was as low as it's been for a while. This was a very good return. It's unfortunate we didn't get a first round pick back, but it is what it is.
