Owen Tippett shift by shift review

The trade is the trade.

It is a waste of time and energy to agonize over how we wish the Claude Giroux trade could have been different. Furthermore, the pieces of the trade will reveal themselves over literal years so it will be impossible to determine a winner of the trade until then.

Whenever I see and read people losing their minds over such things there is a Taoist proverb I like to think of, “Only a fool wishes to change the past. We should hope for life to happen just as it has.”

What has happened is that, in the immediacy, Claude Giroux has ostensibly been traded for Owen Tippett.
