That trade is pure insanity. Give up two high potential young players on cheap ELCs to pick up a defenseman who will make $7M+ while not getting rid of any long term salary in the process? And since Pitkanen and Murphy are both gone, we would still be short a top 4 defenseman or any prospects who could reasonably become one.

Seems like a lot of assets given up to essentially arrive back at square one. Still missing a top 4 D (albeit improving the top 3), but now with less money to spend, no Ryan Murphy and no Nichushkin/Lindholm/Barkov/whoever.
