I don't think it matters whether it's 1st or 2nd overall. If this trade means giving up assets we can't possibly replace then I don't think Gainey should pull that trigger, unless he gets a decent backup goalie in return or if there's another move for a goalie in the works. Otherwise we're down to Halak + Desjardins in nets. That means we are tanking and couldn't care less about 1st or 2nd overall since we'd get a pretty good pick to begin with.
Well, that's an educated assessment. What if trading Price brings in a player we couldn't otherwise acquire? Hopefully you see that it works both ways (meaning swapping a player you don't think we can replace for a player I don't think we could otherwise acquire, or vice versa).

Anyway, I don't think Gainey should try to trade Price (or Halak), and we already have at least 3 threads talking about this point anyways. This thread is already developing as we all knew it would, with very little discussion of actual Eklund rumours.
