Traders Remorse - Getz for Cally -Do I take the Plan B pill?
Gents - I had been working a deal with a fellow GM a few weeks prior to our draft night to secure Getzlaf, and when it was all said and done, I pulled the trigger on a deal that shipped my Callahan away for his Getzlaf during our draft night / party. I was on the rye bus when the deal went down, and since then have hemmed and hawed over this deal as I'm unsure if it was a good move, a wash, or a mistake.
Arguments for / against Getz: traditionally a multi cat stud with a proven track record; 1st line minutes and ample PP opportunities. Unfortunately, he struggled recently and had to deal with some issues (new baby, I think, and a broken face... ouch), Anaheim seems to be lacking the depth players to provide support 'a-la advanced statistics' (think Suter, J Stall), and is headed for a new system under Boudreau. Getz plays C, where there is a lot of talent.
Arguments for / against Cally: had an amazing year last year and I saw a nice progression in his numbers over the past few years. A 5-tool stud who MAY have over produced and peaked (that's why I was ok with dealing him). Unfortunately, he'll take a lot of pucks under Torts and could get hurt, and may be pushed down the depth chart with recent acquisitions and the emergence of some young guns (Haglin, Kreider). Cally is on the RW, a very scarce position right now.
I need a hockey season to play out in order to really gauge this one; without that, I'm at a loss and kind of see it as a wash.
How did I do on that deal? Silly, good, or ok? Any thoughts on my thinking and analysis?
Cheers, and thanks in advance!
