Trading him could at least land you NHL ready futures, picks, and some NHL players that could bridge the gap.
Nothing you're offering us has a hand in giving us a long term future. A 1st and a D prospect just have potential to do that. There isn't anything guaranteed in that. So what, we give up one of the best wingers in the league for Kunitz? Our prospect pool is fine, adding Olli and some other prospect out of the late 1st doesn't change anything.
