Montreal acquired Scandella from the Sabres a month and a half ago for a 4th round pick. Seems like a pretty good flip.

At what point are we just hemorrhaging assets to fix problems we thought we fixed in the first place? This kind of makes the Kadri deal look like a bit of an indictment.

The Kadri trade doesn't look great but it's tough to look at it in a vacuum. Within the context of trying to add a major piece to the defense while working within the cap constraints they had, I'm not sure it's easy to point to a better alternative.

Can you argue they should have instead prioritized a long term benefit over taking a shot at this year? Sure. But there's a lot of hindsight at work there.

Especially since he arguably played better before being moved to Montreal.

Without getting into my whole Barrie spiel again, are these prices really that nutty? They seem like standard deadline returns for defensive #3/4 defencemen or middle-6 forward. It's always like a 2nd round pick and then you spin a wheel for something else (another 2nd, 3rd, prospect, nothing).

Anyway DeMelo is probably the best defenceman on this board and he got far and away the last value back. That's partly beacause Dorion's a dumb-dumb but it's also absolutely because he doesn't fit the typical definition of what a good defensive defenceman is.

Some GM: You want a 2nd for DeMelo? You're insane!

The same GM probably: Hell yeah I'll give you a 2nd for Marco Scandella. I'll even throw in a conditional 4th because he has a reputation as an honest D-man, can contribute on PK, competes, moves the puck, keeps it simple, reputation as a good person/teammate. Not afraid to stick nose in, block shots.
