There is very little to be gained by a knee-jerk trade of Voracek, Schenn, etc., unless it results in a solid improvement in the line-up over several years.
agree. i think if you can get ryan for a package around Voracek and a few prospects, then i'd do it, but with that being highly unlikely, i'd say just tough it out, use our 1st to try and get a defenseman that can develop into something special. perhaps make a run at Perry in the offseason and amnesty briere when we need to re-sign giroux, couturier etc.
