But basically your counter in terms of your system is someone asking for Mark Scheifele, Jacob Trouba and a 1st. Those are Detroit's top two guys and both are NHL ready. They weren't top 10 picks but most of their status is actually earned in pro hockey. I cannot imagine the package they are available for, they weren't put in together for Rick Nash.
I understand wanting that package it is just one that is highly unlikely to be trotted out by Detroit. I can see Nyquist and Kindl, I do think they need to add to Nyquist but how much is the real question.
I like Bogosian and he is young but two top 30 NHL ready prospects and a first is more than I think the Jets are getting in all honesty.
Except they're not as highly regarded as Schiefele and Trouba. Best prospect = best prospect is a fallacy. Otherwise Yakupov for Toffoli would be a conversation.
Why the hell would Winnipeg want Nyquist and Kindl? Do you see Detroit making that trade if the tables were turned? Not in a million years. Would you trade Smith for Klingberg and Postma if Smith broke out better than in your wildest dreams? I'm gonna go on a limb and say no.
