The main boards would have loved the shrewdness of Holmgren and praised him for dealing Richards when his value was high.

But as it stands, Simmonds+Schenn+2nd has turned into a much better package than Kadri+Kulemin+2nd would have been, but he gets brutalized because LA happened to win the Cup with Richards on the team.

Just funny to think about how the perception of the trade would have been in Holmgren's favor had he accepted a lesser deal than the one he took. No logic on the main boards.
Don't forget how Homer is an idiot for trading Carter to LA as well. Boy, I'm sure LA misses Voracek on their wing right now.
