he'll net by far the best return. he's got a teenie tiny contract and has produced well beyond anyones wildest expectations. literally every team can use a guy like prospal on their club. imho i think he could net a first round pick because there are likely to be very few sellers and a TON of buyers....and a team like the thrashers which never make the playoffs could probably use him big time to try to make a deep run.

also, hes older, so hes not a long term solution for our team. hes got at most 2-3 years of good production left in him, and if we truly become sellers, we wont be competing at an elite level till probably the end of that time frame.
