With the trade of Beauchemin, our only other 30+ guy in Kaberle would be out for a guy who's more along our team's average age going forward, at 25-26.
Although now that Versteeg is out I'd be much more hesitant to trade MacArthur. Kessel, Grabovski, Lupul and Kulemin would then be our only real top-six forwards going into next year.
I would consider this but would ultimately reject. Value-wise theyre about equal but, like others have stated, Mac has fit really well in Toronto. He's definitely a building block towards the future and I don't think it would be wise to deal recently signed assets for reasons like worrying about whether a player may regress following a new contract deal
