Take out Gardiner for Franson, Kadri for Ashton/Colborne, and I would consider it.
There currently is no other player in the entire organization with Kadri's skill-set to look forward to. Its not a matter of trading this guys point totals for another guy's point totals, you can't say "Kadri will never be a 40G PWF." That's not the point, you must look at players as pieces to a team. Without Kadri, there is no one else to replace him with those hands and vision to go with that edge he plays with.
The way I see it, is the upgrade from Lupul to Nash, taking salary into account, worth all that? That's how it must be looked at. And when considering this team's strengths/weaknesses, its an easy no from me.
