The way I look at those trades is simple. Pronger was breaking down, and we weren't winning a cup with Richards and Carter without a number one defenseman. Instead of keeping them here and having the basis of our core older as we waited for a new #1 defenseman we traded them to get younger. We still lack the Pronger replacement, but the youth was much needed.

I'm not sure what people think would have happened if we kept those two. We certainly wouldn't have a Cup anyway
