Derp. Now we don't have depth. Let's trade Gaborik.

Now we're back to the same setup that led the team to their best season in 20 years? Oh no!

How is there no longterm planning on display there?

Nash is younger than Gaborik and isn't riddled with injuries. Nash doesn't look like he's about to lose the skills that made him successful any second now, Gaborik does.

Dubi scored 10 goals last year and we were up in arms. He had 2 this year and still has a fat cap hit. Trading him and getting Brassard in the other deal was smart in the long-term - more production for a less money. Moore filled a huge need on the backend while being far more of a sure thing than Erixon. Dorsett provides something that was sorely lacking and that none of the players traded to CBJ were providing.

I don't think there was a lack of planning there. The guys NYR got in those trades are better for the long-term health of the team than the guys they gave up. Losing the 1st rounder hurts, but the team's got a lot of young guys knocking on the door right now.
