I think we have different definitions of what a bad trade is, I marginally take a loss on the Debrusk for Kyanulin swap but everything else, from ratings to age is pretty much the exact same.
This Devils team has consistently been performing poorly no matter the players they have. If you ain't winning a cup with a team like they had last season, then there's problems somewhere.
But hey, ya'll do you.
An outright 3 overall loss to Vancouver with no even ups coming back your way at all is actually quite bad considering the talent being shuffled around in this deal. Plus you take on $2M more cap for taking that downgrade as well. You should've gotten more, but I know how insanely ridiculous it is trying to trade with rk too though. 😂

I understand Cor's comments the most as he knows this team better than anyone.
Kyanulin was also upgraded 2 overalls during the MPU's. I could easily do that to Debrusk, if I felt like it.
I think these "lol bad trades 4 Devils" comments are an over reaction and it goes back to the whole idea that anyone in their late 20's and beyond is deemed as useless in this league. If they ain't upgrading or mid 20's and lower, it's game over.
The Devils core has been struggling, and they were even better last year. I added MacKinnon and swapped a few others - still not winning as much as they should. Something needs to give and sometimes you give a little to make a deal happen.
Names, overalls and ages aren't the be all and end all in a sim league.
