OH I agree whole heartedly with this too. With every Wideman for Yakupov Trade I've made, I have the on going nightmares of those
My Hartnell and Halak
Your Roloson and Havlat
I know I know...I could justify it back then...but hindsight is 20/20.
I've probably Outright Stollen about 20% of my trades
(My Wideman for a They're 1st = Yakupov or my Dubinsky for his Tavares straight up)
Probably had about 60% equal offers (Kessel for Lucic and/or Hemsky for Havlat - sorry for that last one...but at the end of the day)
and outright lost 20% (see the Hartnell/Halak offer above). The more you move...the more likely you are to win/lose/break even. But it's fun...so I stay active and try to learn from my mistakes.
