Whitney is a very good veteran who will be a solid addition for a contender. A late first is a possibility if someone really loves Whitney and you think he's the difference maker required to take you to the Stanley Cup. A player that would more be sought by the Pittsburgh's of the world.

Phoenix is more of the mind frame of tweaking the roster to make the playoffs and as such their piggy bank and propensity to spend will be reduced. One of our firsts and likely our second rounder are likely in play (2 separate deals not or a longer term type player) here but to think we'd part with both Mueller and a first for 37 year old Whitney is purely wishful thinking. And if you have to sell it by telling me how great Whitney was in the past I just go back to my original point. What's he going to do for this team?
You missed the sarcasm but thats okay
