I don't want a forward to be the return in a comrie trade and here is why:

If lowe gets a forward, it won't be a superstar because of dollars, it won't be a grinder or max 3rd/4th liner because we have enough of those guys signed to long term deals already, it will be a young guy like gomez.

If we get a guy like gomez, then someone like chimera or horcoff is denied top 6 minutes. This stunts their development without a lot of gain. How many extra goals would we score if we had gomez between smyth and hemsky instead of horcoff? Probably less than 20. So the return is just 20 goals.

IMO, lowe should be looking at prospects. Hamhuis, woywitka, suter etc
