I don't understand why Loui can't grow with Benn.
Regardless of the reasoning, the fact is those trades brought ample return.

Like I said I'm fine with Loui sticking around. This isn't a thread about why Loui shouldn't be here or why we don't need him. I'm sure he and Benn can play together and be dynamic for a few more seasons. There's no NEED to unload him. I don't think Loui is Teemu Selanne though where he'll keep the pace in to his 40s. There is a window there. And I'd just rather explore options. I don't think this team is in the position to not explore options. If someone has a Brayden Schenn for us and wants Loui, I do it. If someone has an Alex Goligoski for us and wants Loui, I tell them to stick it up their @zz.
