I agree with the notion that Drew's value is so high that dealing him would return us a ton of value but I still wouldn't do it.
You can use a few different comparisons and get similar results but you don't need to look too far. 99 was dealt to us after winning a heavy hand full of cup rings for one of the best up and coming centers in the game and a ton of other pieces that should have set the Oilers up for another decade but it was one and done.
Then we dealt 99 for the Vopat et al and we all know how that worked out.
As an org we have pretty much always (with a few exceptions) dealt away our most talented players with the same notion that one exceptional proven player will help us fill several holes. Thank god we have learned from that mistake.
Doughty for Crosby? Sure I would but after that the list gets pretty thin.
