Pleks, Markov, Cole, gorges... these guys should not be traded if we want to contend in the next few seasons. Some think we should entertain offers for pleks and gio and whatever at the deadline if we are not in a playoff position... but that would be unwise because playoff teams trying to get vets won't trade players who are NHL ready anytime soon, but rather picks and prospects, which would be a backwards move. We already have a lot of picks and prospects
Fair enough. Good post.
Unlike you, I do not think we will contend next year, and Cole therefore is expendable to me. We can find a stronger 30 year old UFA in 14-15 to replace him. Good UFAs go to contenders.
And if your read my post above, I believe we should keep Marky, and only offer Pleks for a chance at an insane offer.
