The Upshall trade is pretty insignificant now because we all have realized Upshall sucks, and the 2nd rounder is probably a bust.

The Eminger trade is a stinger, but even if we slide John Carlson into our lineup, I don't think that we are a better team for it. It would certainly make our defense more appealing to the readers of the main board though!!

Obviously the Bobrovsky trade stings but Bob would not have won a Vezina here, even if he was the starter. It's hard to take Mason over him but with how players fluctuate in this league, especially goalies, HFboards is probably going to be singing a much different song next summer.
The Eminger trade was bad off the bat but when talking about most assume that we would have definitely taken Carlson like its a fact which makes it seem worse than it actually is.

I also enjoy when people complain about taking Marshall over Subban.
