Exactly. No one will object to trading dead weight, or trading a player for an obviously good return. I have always been of of the opinion that Spacek was the superior defensive player and had a bigger place on the Habs. Also, I would've preferred his smaller and expiring contract than Kaberle's.
If we can trade some players, even a good veteran or two, for a great return, I am all for it. I just think that trading all our veterans is a silly idea, and I feel that we need veteran leadership to help our young core develop efficiently.
I understand your point, but what I am saying is that drafting is the most luck-dependent of any hockey strategies, wouldn't you agree? Trading for an established player involves a smaller gamble than drafting in the top 15.
I 100% agree.
