Why is everyone freaking out at the return? The other trades that have happened so far are similar value. Calgary shipped out two players better than Clowe and got back a low 1st and b-level prospects at best.
2nds are probably similar value to any of those prospects.
Prices are super-low on deadline deals right now. Outside of the Kings giving up 2 seconds for Robyn freaking Regehr, this is probably on par with the other trades so far in terms of return vs asset value.
This is the way I look at it too. But you know how we are here on the HF boards, if we aren't absolutely fleecing the other team in the trade, half of us will call for DW to be fired.
