I just wanted to gauge the expected return you all thought would be necessary in order to involve Pacioretty in a trade. A few members on our boards had raised the idea, and though as far fetched as the idea may seem, I thought it could be interesting considering how much defensive depth we have and might be willing to trade. I actually got to see him play a few times while he was in high school and it really was apparent even in his freshman year how special of a player he could become.
Considering we are deep in young D prospects, and need big, young, power forwards like Patches, its almost a complete non-starter unless you are going to massively overpay. Considering this is Patches first full season in the NHL and he's about to score 30 goals, I'd say your board should really quit dreaming, as the price will be astronomical. He's as close to an untouchable as they come.
