Trading RNH just sounds ridiculous to me. He has had marked improvement in a short time frame in other important areas of his game. I would also like to mention these improvements were against tougher than normal competition. Shelter him don't trade the guy because his offensive hasn't jived yet.
There is well documented accounts of media and fans wanting to trade Gretzky as he was way too small to play in the NHL. There was also a ton of Oilers fans who wanted Coffey moved due to his defensive lapses. The trend continues in fans impatience.
