Trades like this happen all the time. Jack Johnson is terrible and Columbus traded Jeff Carter for him and a 1st round pick. The league still hasn't figured out that Jack Johnson is bad. Truth be told, the league is pretty ignorant of what is going on on other teams.

It's also a bit of teams thinking they can fix a player and that its the other teams fault for not getting more out of the player. Gelinas definitely has value in a league where Jason Garrison can get a major contract after one decent season with a bunch of PP goals. But he needs to be protected defensively and we desperately need some core forwards.

BTW, fantastic thread to start and great post.

I really love Zibanejad and I think he is very much obtainable for a fair price that we can afford. Makes so much sense for both teams actually.

I'd be surprised if Lou does not make some such trade either by the deadline but especially this offseason. He's almost going to be forced to do so.

Severson has become victim of lofty and unreasonable expectations by many of you. I was at the game and thought he was fine. Certainly no worse than the other defensemen.

Zidlicky was exceedingly mediocre again. Greene was okay but added nothing offensively. Gelinas had his goal but also had a few adventures defensively. Larsson had a giveaway but also had some really great shifts. Helgeson was average I thought.

i thought gionta looked pretty good last night, the only thing that really doesnt make sense about putting him on the PK is hes so small his reach iisnt as good as some of the bigger guys..i feel like that kind of kills him sometimes on the pk

He always looks good because he hustles to pucks and makes good reads but he's really not effective or a net positive. I'm not going to kill him because I think he's actually played better than in recent seasons when I have really gone after him but he plays far too much.

Him and Bernier together however is not exactly a good combo.

I think the PK is helped by his absence, but they're still letting teams into the zone too easily and Schneider still had to make 8 PP saves tonight. So the PK is not fixed, just better.

No Henrique and the stupidity of continuing to put Gionta on the PK.

My first thought after that odd man rush, pairing two players who can't play defense is a recipe for disaster!

Deboer apparently believes that putting two negatives together will create a positive.
