If a team trades a player that scores 10 goals a season for the past 4 years and then breaks out and scores 40 for his new team, you cannot complain if your a fan of the first team.
To act like what a player will do doesn't come into it is just completely wrong. That is like saying prospects are worthless.

What is undeniable is that we didn't get good value on Perron. Pääjärvi has had pretty clear struggles and we got a second to compensate for the current difference. There were other circumstances that forced us to sell low, but ultimately we got poor value.

That doesn't mean I hate the trade, I like Pääjärvi in the long term and I think this makes us a better team going forward.
