Also, prospects can be traded for a prospect of a similar ilk, but, with Bylsma at the helm it would be pointless, 'cause it's not like if we picked up a decent F prosect in a trade he'd be put in the right situation to succeed at the NHL level anyways.
It's not silly, because they got a bunch of time in the NHL before being moved.

With so many Dmen, it's impossible to give them all enough time to be worth what Gogo and Whits got. So you see Shero waiving guys and losing them for free.
