This trade isn't as bad as people make it out to be. Both teams are getting exactly what they wanted. Most people are looking at this from the "who won the deal" type mentality. This isn't one of those deals.
Ottawa purposefully got worse in the deal. That was by design.
I think Gaborik could be a good fit in Ottawa. When he's at his best he's a great player. @F50marco in a way i agree with you but in a way i don't. Some people may be acting like it's worse for Ottawa than it actually is, but Phaneuf was their best LHD so i think LA wins, Ottawa loses. If CapFriendly had a dislike post option (not saying they should, but if they did), i would give your post a like and a dislike.
