You are right about management not sacrificing playoffs for the future. I guess my scenario would only work if the Bruins were on the outside looking in as in 1996-97 when they dealt Oates and Tocchet.

If I were GM I would make the deals anyway. Just because you do make the trades for younger players doesnt mean they cant help you in the playoffs too. You see it many times that younger guys who get more responsibility thrive when the time comes. The guys we are talking about dealing have yet to thrive in the playoffs.....so where is the loss?
