If Poile isn't confident that Suter will resign at the acceptable price, then we have to trade him this offseason. We aren't the team that can afford to pay market price for others' highest value assets. So we definitely cannot afford to receive below market for our highest value assets.
That's exactly the point I was trying to make...
