SJ invests years into Pavelski, grooming him in their system, only to trade him away because Couture "might" be able to replace him "soon"? Does anyone else see how backwards this logic is? The idea is to stack as many good players on a team as can be, not trade one away because you have another guy that "might" be able to replace him.

We're not trading Girardi because McD "might" be able to replace him. The idea is to KEEP girardi and KEEP McD. Not to mention Girardi is on a great contract. Sheesh.
All great points.

When there was no salary cap.

That line of thinking doesnt work anymore, the rules of the game have changed.
