It was Tim's call.
Nobody said at the time that it was an awful trade for the Sens. It was a risk, and it just didn't work out. Not the end of the world.
I think the reason this was a bad pick was because this was not a minor leaguer you took a chance on. This guy was playing in the league. Amateur scouting is one thing, but pro scouts should have been all over the fact that he generated lots of points playing with the likes of St. Louis an Stamkos, and that he had cooled off considerably after the hot start.
Hey, I don't have all the answers. In life, to be honest, I've failed as much as I have succeeded. But I love my wife. I love my life. And I wish you my kind of success.
