If this franchise cannot afford to miss a single playoff series then the franchise needs to be moved. We will have plenty of years in the future of missing the playoffs.
If Poile loses Suter for nothing with this team as bad as it is this year then he needs to be canned. It isn't like this team is going to win us the cup this year.
Lets debate a bit about what kind of return Suter gets at the deadline. People act like deadline deals result in huge payoffs for a trading team but I disagree.
As a pure rental, I dont see how he possibly gets us more than a 1st (and mind you, we'd be trading him to a cup contender so unless they have someone elses first to offer we are looking at a mid 20's pick) and either another pick or a decent but not spectacular prospect. Basically something like what we gave up for Witt. Im sorry, but UFA Ryan Suter, while valuable, isnt Forsberg or Kovalchuk, and even if he was able to command a similar return those returns werent really all that great if we are wanting to stay competitive now...
How exactly is that return going to keep us in the playoffs for the next few years?
I'll stand by what I have said earlier, if we trade him, do it now and get NHL players back in return. If we are in the hunt at the deadline, dont trade him for peanuts, keep him and see what happens...
