The degree of harm of losing a good young player as you mentioned depends how you lose him... and the reasoning usually comes out. If he sits out the season and it gets around the NHL that he, and not the team, was the one being unreasonable, he will be less marketable and he may not be worth anything in your room if you let that happen and then bring him back.

As for the chances of anyone being traded being non-existent, does the name Wayne Gretzky mean anything to you?
How old was Gretzky when he was traded?
