Again, to make any of those moves sensible, Eakins must be fired.
You don't trade lottery picks for pending UFA's, especially when its a role player.

That is just ridiculously bad asset management. Hilariously bad even. If you were a GM trying to make that trade it would probably take 2 or 3 phone calls just to convince the other GM you were serious and weren't trolling.
