I think the timing of the second trade really helped Brass and Moore. Had there been one huge trade this past summer, I don't think you would have had the same compete level from Brass and Moore that you did get.

The infusion, to the CBJ, from the Rangers this past summer, coupled with getting Bob (who is known for being very dedicated and a hard-worker), and Foligno, who seems to be from a similar mold, kick started the passion in the room and the never-say-die attitude the CBJ seem to have now. Had Brass been traded before the new guys exhibited the new attitude, you might have gotten a guy who didn't play as hard as he has been.

Dorsett would have been the same guy no matter what and Moore has been labeled "a good kid", so he might be the same guy no matter where he ended up (although the fight was surprising).
