Hmm, I'm not taking anything for granted.
PK is a top 2 D, arguably top 1, that can play in every possible situation. He'll play the PP, PK and ES all well. He'll be a player you want on the ice either up by one defending a lead in the dying seconds, or looking for a goal with a minute left. He skates extremely well, isn't afraid to rough it up and come defend his teammates, he'll dive in front of shots, he throws out major hits, and has a bullet of a shot to go along with great stickhandling and puck moving skills.
The guy has very few flaws to his game. He already is a major star. Will he reach superstar status? We'll see, but chances are there, and outside Price, we have nobody else on our team (or even prospect pool, Gally is too young imo) that has that potential.

When you talk about rebuilding a team, trading away your best Dman who happens to be 23 and still in RFA years is absolutely counter productive. To the point that it is moronic.
Rebuilding means keeping your good young players and moving your older veterans that are still effective, like Plekanec and Cole.
It's ********, no offense.
