Asset management.

I think Morgan Rielly, and to an extent Jesse Blacker and Stu Percy in the system make Jake Gardiner expendable for the right piece, especially if Nonis is able to hit a homerun with it.

I was also firm on keeping Schenn but we don't seem to mind the JVR trade do we? That was good asset management.

In a deal for Gardiner, if there is a right player available, both teams will benefit.

I'm not a proponent of getting rid of Gardiner, but instead I won't mind moving him for a building block up front. The only players I've been willing to trade Gardiner for are:

1. Ryan O'Reilly
2. Sean Couturier
3. Maybe Brett Connolly

They're all bright young players who address a need for us.
