Some parts were good like getting UFA and trading them:
He got Gomez as UFA and traded him for McDonagh;
He got Gaborik as a UFA and traded him for assets in bottom-6 lost in the Nash trade;
He traded assets for Nash that left his team depleted until the Gaborik trade;
He got Richards as a UFA but he won't be able to trade him given the costs and the way Torts acted.
So it is either a compliance buy-out or trading Torts.
As for the Flyers: Richards and Carter are still playing while Flyers are out of the PO.
