IDK about everyone else, but when someone says top 6 talent, I think of a 2nd liner, who might be able to fill in on the top line. Something we already have in Grabovski and Hagman. You don't generalize a guy like Heatley as top 6 talent, because obviously he wouldn't play on a teams 2nd line.

Obviously we have different means of interpreting "top 6 talent". If the person who offered up that trade had a 1st liner in mind as the return for those 2, obviously I'd be all for it. But if by top 6 talent he meant the same thing that I understand it to mean, I'm not sure that's good asset management
Unfortunately, there is no dictionary for these type of things, but, anyone in the top 3 is on the 1st line, anyone top 6 is a 1st or 2nd liner. But that's just me.
