I know I would. Plus, Tarasenko might love having another Russian on the team.
Its not that I wouldn't want him on our team, but I don't think we need to trade that much for a position of strength on our team. We are built in such a way where 3 lines provide constant pressure and the 4th takes minutes away from other top lines.

Some teams build around 3 (or so) players, we build an entire team. When contracts roll around, they are spaced out and we don't pay anyone superstar money (until Frank gets paid). Having two would seriously damper our situation and what we are trying to build here. We don't want to pull a "Chicago" and overpay for one cup, we are trying to build a dynasty here.

I don't think the value is off, but I would say "thanks but no thanks"

Just my opinion though.
