Making the case to be Sellers this time

OK, before this gets restated as something I did not say, let's all be clear on what I AM saying:

1. I LIKE the current direction of the franchise...recent on-ice performance notwithstanding. I like it so much, in fact, I do not want them to deviate from the current course we are on.

2. I AM advocating moving any pieces we can in order to obtain prospects and/or draft picks. Unfortunately the prime candidates to trade as a rental are hurt (Frolov and Fedotenko). Perhaps they can move Prospal.

3. Finding a taker for Wolski's salary is a no-brainer, but that won't be easy.

4. Do not...I repeat...DO NOT sacrifice anything of future value (prospects or draft picks) for anything short-term. Any trade should be done with the future in mind, not the present.

5. I AM NOT advocating tanking. Please don't call it that. If at the very least the team stays where it is, I will be fine. If the team as it is currently constituted makes the playoffs, that is awesome. If not, well, we should continue building for the future anyway.
