I think you're fooling yourself if you're one of those people who thinks Stafford's value is a 2nd round pick. I think a team like LA would salivate if we made him available.
It's a lot easier to pay a player good money when you don't have to give up compensation.

i.e., Ville Leino

OK, I'll bite on Lupul. What kind of haul to he bring back for the team that traded him?
