The emergence of Brett Ritchie made Alex Chiasson an expendable part for the Dallas brain trust. They play similar games, but I feel Ritchie has a greater upside.
Texas fans didn't get much chance to see what Alex Guptill had to bring in a Texas Stars sweater during his ATO. He will start the year in Binghamton next season.
All in all, it's not as big an effect on the Texas roster as last year's big center trade that saw Texas lose Reilly Smith, Matt Fraser and Joe Morrow.
