Well, he didn't say to never deal them yet half of the people to respond are saying he did. All he's saying is to be smart about it.

I agree with what Sakich is saying in principal. 3+ round picks are usually better off being traded for players. The problem I have is when you're using them on players like Brown who are often available for nothing late into free agency and are often waived throughout the season.

Philly trading a 4th for Gagner was a good use of a pick that's likely to be of little help to your team. Edmonton trading a 4th (potentially a 3rd) for Brown was not. Especially when we already had a perfectly capable player in the exact same role.
