“…we traded what to get Varlamov?”

Seriously, Greg. Your trades have been sketchy, and there’s an occasional wash-type deal, but what in the hell are you thinking giving up a first-round and a second round pick? In one of what is projected to be a fairly deep draft next season?

I’m a little weirded out by this, to be honest. It honestly smacks of desperation and a mentality that doesn’t seem to allow for much wiggle room. Here’s what I’m wondering – are all these decisions made in a vacuum or something? It just feels flaky.

The rest of the free agency doesn’t seem to have gone that bad, which makes this one for me stand out all the more.
