"Either way, we got fleeced" doesn't seem to make sense in this scenario. It's not a lopsided trade by any means. Tanguay and Jones will likely be a wash, and O'Brien is an upgrade over Sarich. Neither team got fleeced, and neither really got that much better. Jones should be a better fit for us, though, given our logjam on the left side.
I disagree. From what we've been told from Avs fans we have essentially traded Alex Tanguay, a first liner (sure with a terrible attitude when losing) for a Blake Comeau. As it stands the teams have traded a bottom pairing D for a bottom pairing D, and a first liner for a third liner. We. Got. Fleeced.
