It's about the assets we have in place and how they fit together over time. I don't think we should trade Hainsey or Buff now. However, as of now on the right side we have Buff, Bogo, Trouba, Redmond, and Postma, who look like they have the ability to play in the NHL. On the left side we have Enstrom, Hainsey, and Stuart with only Kulda in the pipe looking like a possible (and who knows if we ever see him again).

Therefore if we trade Hainsey we have to gamble on being able to resign/trade for someone exactly like him in the offseason. With Buff though, if management felt they could acquire a really good piece for him in a year or two, I believe we have the pieces to replace him organically.

IF (a fairly large if in my opinion) management thinks Kulda can step in and play at Hainsey's level fairly quickly then by all means, send him on his way.
