I usually really like you as a poster Hud, but on this particular topic it's like you are so blind with hate over it that you can't see that it's not that bad. I am not sure why either because it's not usually your M.O to get this upset about a transaction.
I hate it because of 3 reasons

#1. We complain about Tanguay's attitude but bring in O'Brien who has a a history of being a worse locker room influence.

#2. We thought Tanguay had a bad contract (apparently) and yet took back a worse contract in Jones and added 4 million extra cap the following season in O'Brien over Sarich

#3. We targeted a player in Jones who there are a vast amount of players that have his main positive attribute in his physicalness and yet very little in way of defenseman.

I think moving Tanguay was a good idea and taking a chance on Jones is a good idea but if look at just value alone we downgraded an asset in Tanguay and didn't acquire anyone that isn't readily available in free agency or got a pick for a poor contract.
