Exactly there really isn't a correct answer to this question.
I'll admit that I'm tempted to make a move. But the risks/rewards and everything else have to be weighed.
I've noticed two key points in this scenario that are very important to me.
1. People are way too eager to trade Montoya based on the success of Lundqvist. It's way too early to make that call confidently.
2. Like any year, some of these kids (Toews, Staal, Mueller) will never be worth more than they are right now as new shiney cars sitting on the lot. On draft it's easy to project success for a lot of young players. It's the reality that can often suck.
I'm not dead set against making a move, but I think it's important to REALLY look at the situation.
