A bluechip, possibly elite player
An in his prime, excellent 2-way center who tops out at 50 points and is close to UFAdom + a low first rounder.
A. They wouldn't. The end.
And for those who say they got Pitkanen for Fedetenko and 2 2nds and therefore shouldn't have to give up much for this top 5 pick, remember Tampa Bay before the Cup was widely considered to have been screwed over and made a HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE trade.
Also, today at the mall in the Gap I bought a shirt on sale for $3.99. Does that mean from now on I should get all my shirts for $3.99? I got this one, and its nice. I should be able to get others that are just as nice for the same price or less, right? Right? Right?
Handzus and a low 1st rounder isn't worth a blue-chip prospect who will possibly become an elite-player.
However, Bobby Ryan isn't a blue-chip prospect yet. One good junior season is all he has.
