I'm not so sure Read and Giroux are here long term if Richards or Carter is still here. I think if they are both still here there is slim to no chance that they are (or at least you are looking at a very different Giroux who may not be the player he is today because of the glut of centers this team has). It is a slippery slope to start playing the what-if game with Richards and Carter.

We got a good return for both players. Even if Schenn doesn't turn out to be the stud many thought he would be, I think I still go with Schenn, Simmonds, and the pick over Richards.
I thought Holmgren redeemed himself with that trade and I said I would judge him again from that trade forward. His follow up unfortunately has not been very good at all...
