Yeah, that's probably the difference in assessment between us.

To be clear, I think it was a good decision in balance. Lots of purchases I've made at full retail price have been things I liked and were good value.

I agree. Some moves need to be measured on the aggregate. Some things just need to get done the cleanest way with no hard feelings and that comes with a cost.

Not sure how they precipitated but both of our biggest albatrosses asking to be traded is not how I imagined it playing out. I was looking forward to chicanery.

If Marleau was like a Datsyuk situation where it was just cap hit moving, I think they could have moved for less than 1st.

However, this cost Carolina nearly $4M in actual money.

And its a cap hit that actually eats into Carolina's cap space- had they not traded Faulk they would have been over the cap. 

Arizona had tons of cap space in 2016-2017 they weren't using on their roster (as they were a budget team).
