uggg that's exactly the kind of trade I'm fearing right now.
had to know going into the season that Kost would be on the block at some point, clearly isn't a JM/PG "type" of player, nor has he been consistent enough to be considered a "must re-sign"...
the best hope would be that he had a solid season or went on a big tear at some point and a big offer came down the pipes.
to move him now, where he is playing well, but the team is in a free-fall and PG's desperation will have opposing GM's sensing the blood in the water, is risky.
I'll say it now, so no one accuses me of just "bashing" management for the sake of it, if we don't get either:
- a 1st + prospsect (quality depending on high good the 1st projects to be)
- part of a large deal for a clear upgrade (top-4 d on decent contract, top-6 fwd on decent contract, both reasonably expected to maintain level of play, as opposed to being in midst of steep decline, like Sarich) or blue-chip prospect/young player
anything short of that, you keep him and wait till february to take advantage of the highest bidder at the deadline... Penner's return should be the expectation.
