If you're guaranteed a cup sure I'd take the risk of losing franchise players for nothing but there just arent any guarantees and that's why trading Staal this summer was the right move.

They took the risk of losing Parise for nothing, they lost him for nothing and didn't win a cup and I don't see them getting there anytime soon again.
