Prust for Ashom = downgrade; saved $1.5mm cap space
Mitchell for Halpern = upgrade; saved $400k cap space
Pyatt for Fedetenko = upgrade; saved $200k cap space
Net/net = marginally better players, overall, on ice with added $2.1mm cap space. Decent work by Sather. The extra $2.1mm can be used to further improve the club.
Asham's a huuuge downgrade. Prust could actually play hocky and fill a role. Asham probably isn't an every night player. I'm not sure if Halpern's an upgrade. He'll win some face-offs but after that he's no more useful than Mitchell. Pyatt and Fedotenko's probably close. I'm not crazy about what we've done. We've added a bunch of ****** players so I'll wait to see what he does after this.
