I really don't get it. You are a team stacked on D but light on O, you have two guys who could fetch you HUGE returns, one of which is the building block of your team that you would never trade(OEL), leaving basically one option(Yandle). Meanwhile, even though you are light on O you still have a good enough team to make, or at least challenge for the playoffs every year, essentially guaranteeing you a draft pick in the 15-30 range, making it very difficult to find elite talent through the draft.

Now, I can understand wanting to trade Yandle for established NHL talent, but to request John Tavares basically implies that Yandle is untouchable, which I think makes absolutely zero sense considering the factors I already mentioned.

I don't get it.
