If we get into a bidding war for, say, Trochek, Spott may offer a package of Sterk and/or Genovese and 2 or 3 picks between rounds 4 and 6. Because Spott can't sweeten that deal because our cupboard is almost empty of high picks, Saginaw may reply that to complete the deal, Spott has to turn Sterk into Bailey or Pederson and/or Genovese into Gilbert.
Other teams may be able to get away with sending their vertions of Genovese and/or Sterk because they can also send 2 or 3 second rounders.
Whatever happens, if Spott is going to really make noise leading up to the deadline, it's going to take one or more young, popular players leaving town. (Kadri/Varone/Tarasuk come to mind)
I agree, though Im not going to be happy with Gilbert or Bailey getting traded. These will be two very dynamic players in this league as early as the deadline, let alone next season.
I understand you give to get, my current standing on what needs to be added may be different then others, personally I do not see the need for a Trocheck, particularly at the anticipated price. I see more value in a player like Cody Ross.
The Rangers already have 3 first line player, no sense going out getting another. They can afford to acquire a lesser player suited for the 2nd line, and at a fraction of the cost.
