Of course this trade looks lopsided, it involves Crosby, the golden boy of hockey. Now, let's say we go back 2 years ago. Crosby 120 pts, Sakic 100 pts. Let's say that do this again, but Fleury gets 15 more wins than Ellis and has a better GAA, SV% and more SHO. Than who wins.
I think this trade isnt that bad of a trade. Yes, Crosby is better than Sakic, but Fleury is better than Ellis. It all depends on what the teams need.
All this hopp-la because it involves Crosby! Plain and simple.
