very true. my comments were geared toward the idea that the pens shouldn't be looking to make a trade -- period -- because the team shouldn't need that kind of a spark. as i said, i don't have a strong opinion about whitney specifically.
This team has a very weak farm system and we are absolutely reliant on it to help resolve the continuous winger issue so to sell off a 2nd round pick which is a high quality prospect and whatever other mystery prospects of ours for someone who most likely wont be on our roster next fall wouldnt be an extremely smart move, especially after 3 years of doing that. It's fine if it's a one time thing but this has started to become habit.
all good points. maybe we're fortunate then, that this is just on ESPN's rumors section, and appears to come from the random musings of a guy in edmonton?
