Christiansen was on his way out. He didn't really have a niche on the team, and he wasn't going to get the quality minutes at C with the talent above him. Armstrong has a few big hits a year, scores a *few* goals, but isn't more than a 3rd liner.

With a prospect & a pick you just aren't sure WHAT will come out of them. It could be good, or it could be Kris Beech

Getting Hal Gill is a major improvement, now that i see Gill was brought in - i'm much more interested in this trade.

Also, some notes on the cap (these aren't official):
