Has there been a trade that has worked out as opposite of it's intention than Downie for Talbot? In a vacuum, that has proven that Berube is completely over matched as an NHL head coach. Holmgren made a trade that legitimately upgraded the offense, when the offense's percentages were going to turn around anyways, so it should have been a trade that made everyone look good. Instead, Downie was completely misused, and is being scratched for Chris Vandevelde. We're going to have to settle for simply clearing Talbot's contract, a player that's glue guy, leader, hard worker, etc., that one would say the team actually needs. And maybe Downie is moved along elsewhere for a draft pick. The only like-minded trade I can think of that worked out worse was Mike York, who was so reviled by Flyers fans that John Stevens scratched him for home games.
