We do? I think most will agree Klefbom is a better prospect and I guess J. Schultz is technically still a prospect by HF terms, but in my eyes he has clearly graduated to the big squad and can't imagine sending him back to the AHL for more seasoning. Marincin has the upside to be better, but is still so raw, Maata is younger than him and looks to have more polish to his game. Musil is the only one left that deserves to be in the conversation, he is really good defensively but his skating is still a bit suspect and he really doesn't contribute offensively, Maata while not an offensive juggernaut is more well rounded in his game and he's a better passer which would serve our transition game better. The way I see it we have 1 that is clearly better and I guess 2 if you want to get by on a technicality.

The Pens offer mentioned is a good one, but I am getting damn sick of trading the present for the future.
