If you dont believe that Tavares needs serious help on the 1st line then I dont know what to tell you. We cant keep waiting for miracles from the waiver wire. We need to make moves.
Have you noticed that no other team has been able to pry away Subban or Perry? What does that tell you about the type of package you would need?

How many impact young players are traded? I would say Richards and Carter are the last two I can think of. And that Carter trade didn't end up too well for Columbus. And I doubt there was any chance Philly would have moved them within the division anyway.

Before that was Phil Kessel, and how many of you would want to make a similar deal?

Trades happen all the time, but not trades involving young high end players. Those kinds of deals are rare, and generally require a package involving several top prospects/young players.
