Expected rating increase so we will say 82 ish

2013 Philly 2nd Round Pick
-Think what a 2nd round pick can land you in the NHL, bottom pairing D, bottom 6 effective forward etc...

Thats about as fair as a deal gets in my opinion. I would like to hear your rebuttals.
The ratings are going down this year for guys like Talbot as they want to make the gap between star players like Crosby and fourth liners like Colton Orr far away. That trade just isn't fair. You should at least be giving up a top 6 forward in that trade and a better defenceman then Grossman.
