they could throw in gardiner and whoever else, but you just don't trade rare talents like Tarasenko. they are the guys you build teams around. guys like Tarasenko make UFA want to sign with you so they can play with that dude.
Tarasenko has huge worth past just his game and points. imho
UFAs... like Kessel will be after next season and Tarasenko won't be while he starts outscoring him. For Kessel's contract we could actually pay for a top pairing d-man... everything about acquiring him seems like a terrible idea.
