Of course you would.

No kidding.

You won't get the same return though.

If they want to win now, it would be a step backwards to make this trade right now.
No doubt he's our best playoff scorer. And yes, if they want to win it now it's a step backwards. The only reason to deal him is to get something for the future. Sometimes you've got to take one step back to go two steps forward.

Question is, do you think we can "win it now?" If you do, then fine... hang on to him. But if not, then deal him so that we can actually win something down the line.

Well, that's a whole other story. As I said above, I don't know enough about Stewart and can't comment on this deal specifically because of this.

I find it hilarious though that some folks are saying that there's NO WAY we should do this vs. others who say there's NO WAY St. Louis does it.

You're right insofar as I don't have confidence that we can win a cup with the squad we have now. I think we're a playoff team and that's about it.

I'd like us to actually be good enough to win a cup someday. We have cup quality goaltending right now and that's about it. It would be nice to build a team that would be capable of supporting Price enough that we could actually contend for something.

Yeah, I guess I should be like you. Koivu was going to lead us to a cup right? It wouldn't have made sense for us to deal him for a prospect like Bobby Ryan right? And Markov? Whew... good thing we hung onto him instead of dealing him like I suggested a couple years back.

Lord knows that you've been dead on with his being completely healthy for the past 2 years. Too bad he's still on the shelf. I mean, what a shock that was.

Good news though, Jason Blake should be ready to become a UFA any day now so I guess we can go get him because he's the last piece for us to win a cup.

I your definition of "thinking outside the box" is dealing away one of our best prospects for an underperforming center like Gomez. Well congratulations, the team has followed your route. I'm just amazed we haven't won a cup yet.
