All 30 NHL GM's disagree with you. There is a reason PK makes 5.4 mill and Mclement makes 2.5. Consistent 30 goal scorers are far more rare than good defensive forwards, of which there are many readily available.
The whole point of this argument, is that you need more than 1 piece to win. You never create one hole to fill another, its pointless. Trading PK is essentially watering down your talent level, because you're not going to get a player as good coming back.
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. This fan base needs to stop trying to trade 25 year old stars hoping for greener pastures. We've got some talent in place, we just need more.
I agree, but you've got to admit, it's so refreshing having a great shut down/pk specialist you can have faith in. Who was the last player that was really a shut down/pk specialist on the Leafs? Dom Moore?
