Not every trade has to be an absolute hose job or a complete disaster. I think this trade will go down as a good deal for both teams. Richards was my favorite player and I hated to see him go, but again, if right now the Kings offered Richards for Simmonds, Schenn, and a third would you do it? I wouldn't.
If you include Couturier then you have to include losing Carter. If we need those 3 guys to replace Richards and it also cost us Carter, I don't see how it could be considered a good trade.
