Not saying we will but the possibility of home ice even in the conversation makes your argument that much more ridiculous. NO GM NO ORGANIZATION IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD SELL IN THE POSITION WE ARE IN. I don't want to come off as rude but this just isn't done. you want to talk when/if the team is hanging around the 9th 10th spot right before the olympic break fine, we can talk about being sellers but if the team is fighting for 4th or 5th in the conference there is no discussion no debate.
You keep saying that noone sells if theyre in a playoff spot, but I honestly dont care about that.

Id rather see what kind of picks Higgins, Girardi, and especially Prospal can return than another early playoff exit and ugly contract situations with all of these guys. Especially when you consider the very good picks the scouting department has been making in the first 3 rounds lately.

Id like to see this organization get creative for once and stop being so damn short-sighted.

Hanging onto the 3 players above and fooling yourself into believing this team, as currently constucted, is an actual contender is exactly that. Short-sighted....and hurtful in the long run.
