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.
There were definitely more bad moves than that, but even so, they don't have impact that people on here would have you believe. Did they hurt the team at times? Sure. But again, more good moves and more impactful good moves should hold more weight.
