I don't see how trading for C rentals makes sense and I figure there just wasn't a market for Benn or Schlemko. He got a pretty good return on Pleks and found a taker for Morrow. Not bad. I'm glad he didn't trade Patches, I don't understand why fans seem to have a desire to run him out of time and I think the return would have been really underwhelming. I don't think he would have gotten first line C with term or a top pairing D back, which are the only trades I'd want for him. I wish he could have found a taker for Shaw and the garbage D nobody wants, but whatevs.
Right now I would be happy with a legit 2nd line center. Brassard & Namestikov are not rentals and you didn't need Patches to land either one.
