If DL gives up a 1st for Whitney, and that comes with a year extension for Whitney, and Whitney keeps producing at his pace, along with giving that extra important presence in the playoffs, both for the on ice and locker room aspects, isn't worth a mid-late 1st at this stage in the game?

I think it can be. If Whitney scores another 15-20 points for the season, which he easily can, and adds another 3-5 per playoff round, I think that is worth it for the development of the team. Forgive me for not particularly caring for a prospect to be named later. If Whitney is a rental, then a 1st would be insane, but for another year? And two playoff runs? That experience he can pass down is invaluable. Smyth is great, OD is great, Scuderi is great for that sort of thing, but its not like adding Whitney would be saturating the team with vets or anything.


We have loads of prosepcts.
