And you need to give value to get value. I just don't see how Giroux for Price or Halak is not reasonable.
I am not 100% against the idea, however from a cost standpoint I think it would make a lot more sense to try to clear real salary first and address the goaltending in that way. Price and Halak are going to be making a lot more money (RFA this year, I think?). Having JVR and Giroux next year when we can expect more from them at their cost would be a big benefit
