We didn't add depth with that trade. Instead, we lost top end talent.

They FLEECED us in my opinion. Really regret that trade. If Nash got injured and we still had Richards/Gaborik in the line up, at least we'd still have a legitimate 1/2 punch. Richards and Stepan just doesn't cut it. Well, Stepan in particular. Richards has been great.
We wouldn't have been able to keep Gaborik, Nash and Richards. Of course Richards buyout would've been the obvious out, but even then it would've been very tight with the cap. We more or less had to trade Gaborik sooner or later.
