Moore is alright, but what's the point of getting another LS d-man.
Dorsett is a good piece.... as a throw-in.
Understandably it wasn't the ideal package, but it's pretty much as good as Gaborik would have gotten.
A couple of factors here: what teams wanted him, what teams could afford his cap hit, and who these select teams were offering in return. He also had a NMC to work around.
These factors had to have narrowed the field down to a small handful of teams.
There's obviously some negatives to this trade, but it's not all bad. I think the biggest positive is we didn't take back significant salary, which was my fear in any Gaborik scenario.
