He wasn't even in New York for 3 weeks before being traded again... We traded him for a guy, who was drafted with a pick which was originally ours but we traded to Atlanta + our 1st rounder to move up several spots to pick Staal. Weird that Bourret made it to the Rangers after all, only to be a bust
At the time most on here thought Sather had just made another 'steal' trade and that we were clear winners
Yep. Everyone knew Bourret would be a boom or bust player but if it turned out he was a boom, it would have been a major steal. Dupuis was also an average 3rd liner at the time, nothing like the player he is today. Can't really be upset at that one looking back on it.
Tyutin for Zherdev pissed me off then and still pisses me off now. I have no problem with trading Tyuts (much like the MDZ situation we have now) for a top 6 winger, but it had to be for a reliable winger, which Zherdev was anythinh but
The Korpikoski trade was certainly not a good one... but no where near the "worst of all time"; not even the worst Ranger trade of all time.
And as has already been said, can't get pissed about the Dupuis trade given the context at the time. Didn't look like it was awful. Not to mention a big part of what he is today is from being on a line with Crosby or Malkin. The moaning about this one is overblown.
