It's not like Russel was blue-chip prospect. The same for Desjardins. The problem in Montreal is that we over-value any asset the team has an expect the world for them. But, Russell for Blunden, Desjardins for Tokarski is about as standard of a trade as you can get. No one is going to give you gold for garbage.
Why not take a risk or trade for a pick instead of choosing the warm body option? You give a 5th round pick to Timmins in 2009 or 2010 and you get a Dumont or Gallagher. Or even Erick Nystrom with a 6th in 2012... I don't mind...
