Yea when I think out loud, I tend to state my points and then try to think of a point that would disprove it so it makes me think more.

But you can see my original point. The perception that some of our players have no value is quite flawed. It just brings into question for me, what kind of value some of our other plays, like Spacek or Gomez, would get.

Honestly, maybe he is. When the guy broke in with the club last year, he was really confident and it showed. He's completely lost it this year. Maybe Palushaj has looked the same this year with Peoria. The only reason why i think we definitely win this trade is simply because Palushaj gets to learn under Boucher from this point on. That and he's 3 years younger than D'agostini.
I agree. Both clubs roll the dice with these assets they are getting back. If Dago returns to form, Palushaj might not be a bad price to pay. Similarly, for us, if Palushaj reaches his potential, this trade could be a win for us.

The biggest thing is that we get rid of a RFA when we already have so many at the end of this year.

Next up Mara.
