We've built up enough good prospects and will continue to get many more prospects in the future therefore getting rid of one draft pick will not hurt our future.

Nashville traded away Parent, Upshall and a first rounder for Forsberg who was past his good years, trading away a 2nd round pick and a couple of marginal players for an injury prone star player in his prime is not the same thing.
Because a team made a glaring mistake (looking back of course), we should do the same type of move to a lesser degree?
Come on, Havlat may break a game open, but he'll miss the next 3. I'd rather give some time on the 2 first lines to the Kostitsyn brothers and Higgins than him.
