In order to get PK you would need to give up a lot. You don't trade a 23yo potential superstar for picks. That's ********, even if it meant getting the 1st overall next year. That pick is in no way guaranteed to become better than PK. So, you would have to include more picks and even a prospect in there and a good one.
Not sure who would want to actually give up all that much.

Because what's the down side to this PK deal? Let's say he does ask for 6M over a long term deal. What's the issue? Does anybody here think PK will not be worth 6M in a couple of years at the most?? PK is not going to be a flop. He is already part of some of the best young Dman in the game. With his work ethic, drive, ambition and attitude, there's no reason to think he will simply go ********, stop improving and take steps backward. He will only get better and better, and now that we have a Defensive Coach, it'll only speed up the process. So again, what's really the risk in giving him a bigger contract? Injuries? I can live with that risk.
