With that said, I agree with your post. This is the perfect season to trade Gionta. He's scoring goals and performing......and we have Gallagher and Desharnais.

Use Gionta in a trade to beef up the forward position.
When you talk about trading Gionta you can't just look at asset mangement. He is an important part of the fabric of the team and obviously plays a big role in the room.

If you trade him for a bigger and younger player you're probably sacrificing skill and losing a lot in the room, very risky with the way the team is playing and woth young guys just breaking in the NHL. Edmonton is a perfect example of how important quality vets and leadership is.
