Worst NHL Trades Everbooklover1
The Top Ten
why did they do that idiotic thing? - 2234
What were they thinking
Trading Wayne Gretzky is awalys a bad idea. Enough said ok
What I think makes this trade worse than Gretzky's is that Lindros didn't live up to the hype (according to me), and that Avalanche went on to win two Stanely cups while the Flyers were left empty handed. - Juicepaketet
This is a truly the worst trade of all time. True, trading an icon like Wayne Gretzky is just a poor all around decision... But look at how well the Avalanche came out compared to the Flyers in the Lindros mess.
They traded a future 4 time cup winner and one of the best defensive forwards in the league
This is not true
The Penguins are still wondering what they did, Naslund came out to be captain of the canucks and is the leading scorer in the history of the Canucks. He also became the best player 2002!
I remember the last 3 years Thornton was in Boston, they competed for 1st place, then they traded Joe and it took them 2 years to get back into the playoffs. The Sharks on the other hand were 13th out of 15 teams in the West at the time of the trade and had the 2nd most wins in the NHL after the trade. However, it should be pointed out that the Bruins have since won a Stanley Cup and the Sharks didn't.
Only time the current season's MVP was dealt. And dealt for a bag of pucks
Kurvers was a pretty good player but he was nearing the end of his career and Niedermayer went on to be one of the greatest players of his generation.
Yeah, this one definitely has to rank as one of the worst ever!
