I don't think it makes a lot of sense to trade our prospects away; let them develop and age with the rest of the young crew. We may not win a cup in the next three year, but I think we'll be in pretty great shape after that. If you can draw someone in free agency, great; if not, we'll likely be no worse than we are now which is still good despite a mediocre offense.
If anything, I'd look to part with some older guys like Hannan, Gill, SK74, etc. before the young guys. Most teams at the deadline are overpaying for NHLers anyways.
Completely agree. I think we've been trading off way to many 1st round picks lately.
