Same here, I have always considered this deal to be one of Lou's rare SCREW UPS. Maybe I wouldn't dislike it so much if the d-man we got back was actually somewhat GOOD (UFA) and helped us repeat, but O'D (Part II) was pretty sh***y.
To this day i really still dislike the O'Donnell for Mitchell trade. Sean absolutely sucked while here, and if we still had Mitchell there would be no albelin and Dano would possibly be the 7th.
(Btw, heard that Mitchell was moved for off-ice issues rather than on ice - perhaps a 'tude problem or partying too much or?)
