If I'm Poile, the guy I'm looking to trade is Blum. His value is incredibly high and he's established himself as a legit second pairing Dman at 22 signed for another season at under $1M. And we have the depth to replace him. Obviously, there would be a drop off. But it could be worth it to add the quality forward we want.
Rinne seems crazy to trade from the simple fact that the market for goalies never seems as strong. I think the return would be significantly less than we'd like. Though I don't feel comfortable paying him $7M a year until he's 33 or so. In the end, I agree that is he is the most "replaceable." But I think that the return might sour any trade.
