Sakic’s GM rep has really taken a nosedive this offseason
I agree this is an awful move but I think he's done a really good job otherwise. Got decent value for Graves especially since he was going to be gone for nothing and that Makar extension was great. Draft was solid too
If this was SEA's plan all along, they could've easily picked Clague instead and gotten significantly more. They still win in a vacuum, as they got a pick for one of the worst dmen in the league, but there was some definite opportunity cost here.
