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.
you really cant start combining players on this team and say hey thats Richards right there. Simmonds hasnt been very good this year at all. Schenn is still a young player in this league and its way to early to judge what we have in him.
So to me this trade is still up in the air as far did we get fair value. Could it in the future? sure. right now it is very much up for debate if the return was enough.
