It would be stupid to do because showing respect for veterans of Alfie's magnitude is more important for our image, ticket sales, etc, than some prospects who may or may not do anything in the NHL. If Alfie was forced out of town, it'd reflect horribly on the franchise. Look at what Chara thought when Hossa was dealt with in a deplorable manner, with all our Swedish prospects, you treat Alfie with 100% respect. Only traded if he wants it and never even mentioned otherwise.

Fair return from a cup contender: late first + mid/high forward prospect.
