Isn't that we basically did to get Tarasenko? Admitted, it was under a different time table, but a smart team trades from areas of strength for areas of weakness. Our biggest strength is wingers up and down the franchise: Our NHL depth is great, our prospect depth is great. Our prospect depth might be even stronger then the NHL level, with Tank, Schwartz, Rattie, Jaskin, Andronov, Veilleux, and Tesink would probably all be among our top 20 prospect, 4 of which would probably be in our top 5, as of now. Prospect for Prospect trades can be risky, but I think this is a case were it is clearly worth the gamble.
