The other part of it is that we have some prospects that are a bit too valuable to give up and would be difficult to replace them.

The deal isn't exactly supposed to be an even trade, but rather one that makes sense for both clubs. We have a specific need, but we're not going to try to fulfill it if it means giving up key pieces in another area. I'm positive Murray would prefer a stop gap solution before dealing away most of those guys. The guys in the rumored trade aren't throw away players either, they're still valuable guys getting interest from other clubs, right now they just don't fit in Ottawa's lineup that well.
Which is what he is doing per the recent rumors of them trying to acquire McLaren or Schneider!
