Don't get why so many people are raging about missing out on Seguin. First of all, there's nothing to say definitively that we didn't try.

Secondly, if we're looking at a comparable return from our side (keeping in mind Boston wants to win now) it's pretty much...

Eberle <= Eriksson
Musil < Morrow
Pitlick <Frazer

So just going with direct comparables, we can say it would have been Eberle + Musil + Pitlick + 2nd or something, but problem is, Eriksson makes $4.25M and is more proven than Eberle, who makes $6M. Boston needs to cut cap. So we would have to send back another cheap player to make up the cap difference, someone like Paajarvi, and we would have to add to make up the current difference between Eberle and Eriksson, and that's even if we could get the cap to work out. More likely, we would have needed to give up a player like Yakupov, and then some.

How many people really wanted to give up something like...

Yakupov + Musil + Pitlick + 2014 1st
Seguin + Peverley

And I wouldn't be surprised if it would have cost us even more as the gap between Yakupov and Eriksson is huge right now.
