It has nothing to do with balls or guts, no GM would trade an established, top line NHL player who's signed long term and producing reasonable well for a pick that won't garner you an elite prospect (RNH is the only guy that seems to be close to that). If for some reason, PG decided to trade either of those guys to get younger (which he won't), he would target a more developed prospect that was more of a sure thing.
