No offense but those moves make no sense..... lets look at the ages of the key players involved..

Thornton - 24
Sammy - 25
Raycroft - 24
Boynton -25
Hilbert - 23

hmmm that looks like a young team right there....all proven players under or around 25 years old... why trade proven young players (except Hilbert) for unproven rookies... and get what ... 3-4 years younger...

Don't get me wrong.. I'm all for a young team... I'd get rid of the older players for draft picks then trading away any of the 5 mentioned above....

if you want to trade players away for rookies... why not trade the players away to the teams holding the #1 pick the next few years... that way.. you get NHL ready rookies....

but in short.. I'd have to say.... NO!!
