Holl, while not playing at his best this season, is at least a serviceable defenceman that can play in the top 4 if needed but is better suited for a #5 role - at only $2M through the end of next season, that is definitely not a "dump" by any means. Ritchie hasn't fit in well and obviously lacks foot speed for the league. But he brings the physical presence that every team looks for in playoffs. If you look at the structure of his contract, it makes him a higher likelihood to be a buy out candidate than a "dump". Even if he was moved for cap purposes, it wouldn't cost a lot because of his buyout structure. He wouldn't have much value if any at all, but he's not a pure dump either.

As for whether Chicago does it or not, it really depends where they see themselves in 2 seasons from now. If they see themselves as contending, then sure maybe they give it a second look before backing away. If not, they'd jump on this deal. Robertson and the 1st are worth that return alone, let alone adding in other assets to help a rebuild in Chicago.

But geez, kids need to learn the definition of things and stop being so bias before commenting. It's tiring on here.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ChiHawk</b></div><div>Ritchie and Holl are both dumps to Chicago...let me be clear about that. What is considered a dump to one team may not be to the next, that's why trades need to fit both teams regardless of objectively there is value or not on paper. Neither Holl or Ritchie is replacing young guys in our current lineup which are part of the future. Further, murphy who was just extended certainly is part of the future, so it's counterproductive from the start to trade him for guys who aren't. Again, as I mentioned in my original comment, this trade is entirely predicated on whether you believe Robertson is truly a top 6 line driving guy or just a top 9 complimentary piece.

Geez, kids need to understand the definition of the other team needs and stop seeing trades ignorant of that before commenting; it's tiring on here for sure.</div></div>

You guys are really spending your time insulting each other on a forum about hockey?
