Unless you know that Puempel wants out and can't say it, I'm not sure how it makes any sense to move him? Going back to your point about building for next season, if Puempel is dealt for a younger player, why is Reid dealing (if Menard rumor is true, likely 4 2nd/3rds for Menard/Findlay) several high picks for players that aren't returning? Wouldn't you be focusing on 93/94's rather then trading your best assets for OA's?

Dealing Puempel goes against everything Reid has said. If it's his idea to trade him, he's going to have a hell of a time explaining that to the fan base.
Couldn't agree more, in fact I think Reid is trying to buy Matt back into staying with the club.
