At the time of the trade, I thought Sather had something up his sleeve to replenish the depth lost in the trade. In fact, I thought it was a foregone conclusion. I liked the trade for that reason, in a vacuum.

As time went on and it became apparent that Asham, Kreider, and Pyatt were going to be tagged to replace Prust, Dubinsky, and Anisimov, that reality became quite horrifying.
