My reasoning is that you're pretty much rebuilding again and starting from scratch..might as well start with a youth d-core. If you get Donovan (pretty much ready to step in next season - he may be a prospect now, but is definitely ready to step in come Sept) AND choose Murray, plus all your other d prospects..you have an awesome core of players on the blue line.

At the same time, you basically improved your scoring by doubling it WITH young players that haven't reached their prime yet. This is why I figured losing Tyutin wasn't as bad as it looked.

Sadly, that's where this one has to stop. We can't afford to give him up. If you want a defenseman from us, we can offer Methot... but we can't realistically offer Tyutin.
