Under that system these young guys with good upside have immense value potential. You don't give them up lightly for a two month rental.
You can gladly part with Harrington or Maatta, but I doubt they would be the centerpiece in a deal to land you the big fish. You're probably talking Morrow or Pouliot which would be much harder to do. And imo Bennett is untouchable, can't give up our only viable wing prospect.
Exactly, we can't call up what we don't have. If we can't land a big fish, I'd love to get another viable TOP 6 Wing prospect.
Does anyone really think we can get a young high end wing like B. Ryan for Kunitz, Morrow, and 1st? I personally think they'd want more.
