the way i look at it, you have to give up a little "possible" return for a known commodity, because the known commodity is more of a garenteed thing (as much as anything can be garanteed in a sport that is).... i guess if i was a baseball player id rather be batting .330 and only hit 10 HR, than bat .210 and hit 35 HR... i dont know if that was a good anaology but i think you get my point
I'm not sure if you're saying you would or wouldn't have traded Hemsky to get a guy like Comrie. At the top you say you would have traded Comrie for Hemsky, and then you say you would have traded Hemsky for Comrie.

I guess I'm saying that Carolina could trade Staal for Comrie, but it might not be very long before it starts to look like a real foolish trade for them. Untapped potential is just extremely valuable in the league today.
