We're going to have to live with another McPhee blunder.
At some point you have to dress a credible nhl team. Playing youngsters is fine if they are near-ready but you cant roll out marginal AHL (or wherever their feeder is) talent. If they want Vermette gone, for whatever reason, then the trade would be decent for them since they are shedding contract years and getting a credible NHL player in return.
