Joe Thornton has been traded once in his career already. You never know what can happen.
For instance, do LA or SJ go through a major shake up if things don't go well between now and the end of the playoffs? If they do, a #1C could possibly move this summer like the Philly centers moving last off season.
Neither of the Philly centers that were traded are the types posters are talking about.
Thats another issue I'm having with this discussion. Posters just keep moving the benchmark of what this mythical #1 is suposed to be. Its starts at Crosby, Malkin, and now we are down to Jeff Carter and Mik Richards. While good players they are hardly on the same level as the players that started the debate. I would also argue we have guys at or that can potentially be at their level already on our roster (Carter and Richards level that is)
EDIT: with the assets we have we can definately make a trade for a proven top 6 center. I just don't see how its possible to trade for a proven #1.
