The key words there are 'in this case.' It rarely works out that way.

Are you saying even though we know for a fact that the 'Hawks won the cup last year that they should have dealt away Bolland when he was 20 in an effort to win it earlier?

Or that even though the Canucks are on the cusp of winning their first ever cup they should have dealt away a 20 year old Kesler in an effort to win it earlier?

And in the cap era having a young NHL contributer on a ELC is much more important than it used to be.
