Small error.

Technically even if they're under 25, they should be traded if they've been so presumptuous as to make the NHL. See case: Latendresse, Guillaume.

As per generally accepted HF logic, prospects in the NHL, but not scoring insanely are inferior to prospects who are scoring lots of goals, regardless of the level of play.

Case and point: that thread last week where someone put Chipchura's pro stats side by side with Latendresse's to prove the two were basically identical in terms of offensive potential. The fact that Lats is a year younger and accumulated those stats in the NHL exclusively, vs. Chips who did it mostly in the AHL of course is not a real counter-argument.
