    Hindsight is 20-20 but it was stupid to make the trade after riding Budaj for sooooo long. The trade happened a couple weeks before Quick returned. It is also another case of the Kings trading a guy who their development staff didn't have high faith in and then the player has success with the new franchise.

    source on not having faith in the guy? He was 19 when the Kings Traded him and i assumed at the time that he was part of the trade because he was a guy Tampa Bay wanted. Additionally he was young enough to not be an immediate help with the team, who clearly considered themselves still contenders. I don't need to go through the pros and cons of the trade again at this point, everyone knows why it was made and what ended up happening, but im not sure id suggest the team lost faith in Cernak, so much as he was a solid asset that wasn't part of the team's immediate plans.

    Either way, i'd love to get Cernak back here.
