Also this doesn't help in negotiations, I'm prone to it too. But if I need a top 6 forward I'm offering Keith Yandle because I know people aren't looking for Klesla even though hes a useful guy.
This is my biggest problem. I would love to keep Kovy, Henrique, and Larsson. But I don't see any way of filling what I perceive as weaknesses through the likes of Zubrus, Clarkson, Fayne, Volchenkov, etc. And even if I could trade (one of) those players for something decent, I'd likely be filling one hole just to create another. I really did not mean to cause a ruckus (I wasn't even shopping Kovy, I got on HF and had three PMs asking for him) and I'm fine keeping him if you guys don't want the trade to go through.
