The only way they would trade away a Johnson or Kessel is if they have a package offered to them that
A) knocks their socks off
B) gives them a better base for the future
It has nothing to do with getting 70 points next season instead of 55 points. And, once again, you are trying to peddle our trash for their best assets. NHL GMs are smarter than you seem to think.
Imo if anyone will get St-Louis first pick, it's ottawa.
