I would agree that the trades were mistakes, but I don't agree that we should or could have gotten better players. It's just that the guys we got back were young. Too much was probably expected of them too soon. If their development goes off track and stagnates, then we can really blame them a few years from now.

I think Schenn has had a decent year and while I'm not sure he'll ever be as good as Richards I'm still in wait and see mode. It's ridiculous to look at a 21 and a 20 year old and act like they should be the difference between us not making the playoffs and being Cup contenders.
