At some point, the fact that he was a 1st round pick has to stop being a factor in a player's value to this team.
The trades are meant to be in tandem. If we get greg campbell is Belanger really more valuable than him??

And that is not the first line this year. Eberle has 6 goals and Nuge has 11 points. The horcoff and gagner lines of late are 1 and 2 as far as even strength goes.

It's not that he's a first round pick, it's the fact that Krueger is trying to have a gritty player on all top 3 lines and Beach is worth a trial for the last 20 or so odd games isn't he? And i'm adding a 5th round pick that has a 5 % chance of making the NHL 5 years from now.
