If a trade comes about near the deadline for a star player I am not against packaging him with say Fischer,(maybe more not sure what it will take) for a star. We have depth in d prospects to make such a move.
Isnt that exactly what he was drafted for?

Maybe he got caught in numbers game last season, and now, but we will need him in near future. I'd rather see us developing our own 3rd line center, that resorting to another patch like Juneau, Bonk Smolinski or Lang (it seems). White, mentioned above, will likely need a couple years worth of AHL games - and hes no sure thing either.
