I don't know how someone could put an accurate value on whether a hypothetical 2nd and a good prospect < a 1st or vice versa, but the Stars have a bunch of players who fall into my definition of "a good prospect." I would prefer holding out for a 1st and the better chance that the team winds up with a higher quality player because the Stars need talent more than they need depth.
Sure. And you can probably get one. I am just saying I hope, you get a first for Ryder and we get another winger for something including our 1st and everyone will be happy with the deals their team has made.

Yeah, I dunno, putting a cost to Ryder is what everyone is trying to figure here and apparently it isn't easy, but Morrow is kinda inbetween that veteran power foward and a mediocre third liner himself these days, so I would not hang that part too high.
