Alright... now this has shocked me, and the entire hockey world. You cannot legitimately say you saw this coming.
My opinions on Domi are known, and I still think the trade is fair. Domi is overpriced at 2 years. This is the contract domi should have had.
This could look like a steal of a contract near the middle, or it could collapse. I don't think you give a guy with an injury history this much term. Apparently it was all or nothing with anderson. I like the risk to this.
In the end, I still understand why both GMs wanted the opposite. I see why Bergevin would never give Domi the contract he got, and why Jarmo would never give Anderson this contract.
It remains a win win trade. Both teams got exactly what they wanted in the exact term they wanted. Both teams are running risks, just the complete opposite risk.
