Who else was traded? Clarke was traded for Koekkoek. Slater is back next year. Posa was traded away for a 4th. Remy Giftopoulis is back as an OA.
So the big trade made by WR was trading away Lorentz for a graduating OA. And the mission there was because he felt the Spits needed "playoff experience" as part of the sell job to the committee and Lorenz was miserable here and would have not been back as an OA regardless.
Why not trade Koko if you want to make a run at the cup? Why pick up an OA as a boost to your team, if you want to impress the commitee, showing your playoff experience of 4 games isn't going to help, whats going to help is using Koko to get a few more sconds to add to the 3 spares you already have, 6 second round picks is pretty damn good trade bait for some of next years top pleyers, assemble a team for next year to play around the prodical son (Kirby), that impresses them, not some decent OA's and 1 scoring line.
and if you're going to say that Koko wouldn't accept a trade, don't bother, he wasn't going to even play for Windsor this year until his dad got fired from the Russian team he was playing for, and there is no way in hell Boston was going to let him refuse a trade to a contender. I guarantee WR was not accepting offers on him.
