Man I can't believe we're still talking about the Whitney trade. Ha!

But let I remind everyone that beyond Scotty and Prongs our D consisted off Brookbank, Hedican, Montador, Mikkelson and Salcido. We DESPERATELY needed a puck-moving d-man and Whitney was just what the doctor ordered. That was also when Beauch was sidelined with his torn ACL and we were not in a playoff spot at the time of the trade. We absolutely would not have made the playoffs if not for that trade and Ryan's play made moving Kunitz hurt less.

The funniest part about reading all the old posts about the trade was how mad so many people were about losing Tangradi. 81 games and 2 goals in four years with two different teams.
