All I wanted was ONE piece that would make me feel good. Instead, it's two that are kinda sorta ok and one I'm highly skeptical of. Pick is a pick, good to have, never felt it was necessarily necessary given the other pieces.
Edit: AND we gave up pieces the other way.

No offense, but no one cares if fans of other teams are sorry. Leave your sorry notes on the Main Board, don't come in here rubbing it in. We just lost the only franchise player in our history. We're not in the mood for pity.
Howson obviously isn't done. We have 10 NHL quality defenseman. Bobby Ryan anyone?
Yeah, I don't know about Bobby Ryan but this feels like preparation for another deal down the line. We really don't have a single top line forward on the team as of right now. It's Brassard and some potential.
We knew that something like this was going to happen on the move. What I was curious about was Howson was going to address the next move.
