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.
i have absolutely no qualms with trading away a 19th overall pick(our highest pick in two decades that we earned) or prospects for good to elite young players(lets say a subban or a el nino level player) but not a journeyman bottom pairing dman being cast away by a non-playoff team(colorado)

quincey was a reactionary move to acquire a filler with no eye 3 to 5 years down the road.

so yah, if we arent going to be aggressive and "try" and acquire more top end young talent one way or another then its a better idea to just hold onto our picks
