No offense to you, but the question is really not a fair one. There's the benefit of seeing how history has played out.

I said yes because I don't think the Rangers gave up one extraordinary player in the deal (and still don't).Turns our they didn't have the internal resources to replace the players they dealt. Or the didn't find replacements via FA.

The powers that be decided who was part of their core and didn't give up anyone who was in that core (Callahan, McDonagh, Kreider, Hagelin, Staal, Girardi, possiblyDel Zotto etc). And they got a guy who was the additional goal scorer they proved to be lacking in the playoffs one who was younger than Mark Messier when he was acquired.
