Otherwise we'll be in the very same situation next season except even worse off as we'll have a probably retired guerin and even less prospect wise to be able to select from to sell off.
If they want to make a move in the off season to sign him then I am all for it, but I just hate these damn deadline deals where we're constantly the buyers.
A 2nd, 3rd, or a middle-of-the-road prospect isn't going to kill us, even if we do it every year.
It's worth it to acquire talent at the deadline for an extra push, and it's what contenders do, so you'd better get used to it.
