Like Lev said, lets get serious. You want to talk about Callahan or maybe Gilroy the other way? Then you'll get your foot into the door.
While Tyutin's ceiling was higher, his value was on the lower side b/c he was coming of a rough year.
Also take into the fact that it seems that Filatov and Hitchy aren't getting along, as well as the player is threatening to LEAVE for the KHL. that brings his value down some. Especially knowing that he might not be ready for the NHL but if he doesn't play in the NHL he might bolt for the KHL where, realistically you don't know if he is going to return ala Radulov. That does lower his value some.
If the trade was Girardi, Lisin and a 1st I would still do it. Actually if it was Gilroy and a 2nd I would still do it as well. I mean a dman has to be the focal point for us b/c we are stacked with defensive prospects. Sangs and Heikk look to be almost (if not) NHL ready. Sauer could be as well. Then we have Kundratek, and now add to the list Maggio and Klassen who both look to become more serious prospects. And don't forget Williams who could actually pull his head out of his butt and reach potential.
so if Girardi, or gilroy, or Sangs were the focal point of the trade along w/ a pick, and a lesser prospect or player. I would have no problem pulling it. We don't have the room for all the defensive prospects to play w/ the NYR especially since it doesn't look good in getting rid of Rosy or Redden in the near future.
