The point was that the 20 y/o was being somewhat overrated here because...he was 20! Meanwhile the 30 y/o was being underrated (at least by one poster) because he was...30!

Guess someone should have told Chicago about Cullimore's age before they signed him. Guy is ...over 30!
I could be an ass and say that someone should tell the Islanders that Hamerlik is not a winner- but that would be "hostile"(unlike the other side).

Cullimore will cost us 2.5 mil- not 4. He also cost nothing but money- when the stated trade was for A) our best goal scorer, and B) Our 2nd best D prospect.

There is no doubt that the hawks *are* interested in Hamerlik and Niinima(and possibly Aucoin). But they aren't about to give up that much for one of those players.

Is that really that difficult to understand? Is it hostile of me to say that Kvasha has little to no value in a trade?...
