I believe in calculated risks designed to maximize diminishing assets but that's not the case here. You'd be risking a stud blueliner (and he is a stud blueliner already) for a guy who hasn't played an NHL game.

I love the idea of trading for Jones. I love the idea of trading for top picks. But not with 23 year old proven studs who we're going to build our blueline around. That's actually not a good risk to take.

Dude, you've actually got me to say that I wouldn't trade for a 1st overall pick. That's not easy for folks to do.

Congratulations.

I didn't say he sucked.

Over PK though? No.
Just ask yourself if we'd be able to get the first overall pick this year for Pk Subban? Imo, there isn't a team in the league that would take Pk over that pick, including us.
