With Sobotka, I'm not sure what you are talking about, since hitchcock wasn't even in St. L when that trade happened. And even if you didn't know what a player Sobotka would have turned out, they would have been much better off getting someone who couldn't just bolt via UFA. Sobotka today would have looked great in a top-9 role on the Av today, especially since he can play both center and wing (and would have taken the sting out of losing RoR if they so choose).
Mcginn Parenteau, etc are decent players, but they are mere replacements for players that should have been there, such as Mueller, Flash, that they severely mismanaged.
McGinn is way better than Mueller, and Parenteau is a lot better than Flash. You are totally wrong IMO.
