As for being a "buyers market"... sounds like a premature excuse as to why Legwand didn't get much. St Louis got a good return. Gaborik and Hemsky have done pretty much nothing this year (and the previous yr) and shouldn't get much of a return. Maybe going to a new team will ignite them-- no other reason for people to trade for them. Luongo is a contract albatross at this stage. St Louis / Callahan only players of decent value that have been traded.
No excuses, just my belief. Gaborik and Luongo still should have returned more, and St. Louis only fetched a UFA and two picks, despite being the 8th leading scorer in the league? I've just been underwhelmed, so am not getting hopes up. Feel free to spin that as you like.
