Now we have a young stud in Michalek, 4 years his junior, and a possible come back kid in Cheechoo. Even if Cheechoo doesn't get back to his old self, I'm still happy with the trade.
Apparently he's on the 2nd PP unit in SJ too. Too funny.
I think he'll be great offensively in SJ for at least a couple of years, but I still don't think he's going to be the guy that puts them over the top in the playoffs. I also agree that we're better with this trade depth-wise, future/cap-wise and that minor detail... having players who actually want to be here.
