Do people realize how many prospects the Wings have in their pipeline (keep in mind I didn't qualify the abilities of them). Trading away draft picks and prospects is what we SHOULD be doing. We've accumulated so many prospects since the lockout started that we obviously either don't have room for them or are not planning to make room for them.
I'm not claiming they have a ton of value - but being this conservative when we're re-signing Samuelsson, Bertuzzi and probably Cleary this year makes zero sense. So why try to get even more? Unload some for talent that helps us now.
