I highly doubt TB wants to let go of 6th, but whatever, honestly, I'd rather get a proven young player than the 6th for the price.
I'd still like JVR from Philly for Price.
You can't look at it this way.
Goaltending isn't like other positions in hockey. When one guy plays, the other doesn't.
This, and Halak's progression just changes the landscape so much.
I know that, if Gainey knew how good Halak was set to become, he probably wouldn't have taken Price at #5 back in 2005.
However, things change, and now, you have the opportunity to choose a player and try to develop him into something you've lacked for many years, all that by giving a player playing at your deepest position. This is something you just CAN'T overlook. Not with two goalies of that quality.
