This does not affect tomorrow at all - that is why it is a great trade.

Dorse is basically a 3rd liner/energy/goon. Great guy but expendable. John Moore is young, but let's be honest - he was expandable because we already have Murray/Erixon/Golubouf/Prout, plus Wiz/Jack/Nikita, so we are set with defense on top of whoever we take in the first round this year.

With Johansen/Jenner/Anisimov/Dubie we have the center depth to deal Brassard who was not a part of our future after the last couple disappointing seasons.

We gave up no high draft picks, top prospects, or any major core pieces. We added a sniper who will make all the young guys better and score some goals for the next couple years
