I'm just happy we finally made a trade that improved the on-ice product. Aside from the Fraser-Smyth deal where the incoming player basically traded himself, did Tambo even make one of those kinds of trades? And MacTavish did so less than a week after the start of free agency.

The trade itself, I feel is a bit of an overpay simply because of the extra salary we're taking on (or rather, we're likely to be taking on) should've been reflected more in the return we gave up. But there's no question we're walking away with the better player, and those deals have been a rarity in Edmonton the last few years.
