Nobody is going to trade significant assets that will keep us in the playoffs (as in, multiple core players) for a rental. To do so would be to lessen their own chances.

Lou will not undermine a playoff team by trading its best player and captain. It's too much upheaval in the locker room, and it cuts off the possibility of a Cup run even before it begins. It also tells the team that Lou is hedging his bet because he doesn't think they are winners, and he doesn't think he can get Parise to stay. All bad messages for management to send.
