but the biggest thing is look at how AWFUL our drafts were...i don't think we picked a player in the 1st round worth a damn between kovalev in 91 and staal in 2005

a team can afford to trade away 2 good young players to put them over IF they then draft well and restock the system. they can't trade away the few young players they have and then draft terrible for 15 years
