Yup. Unless a guy like Marleau or Iginla or Pominville or MSL or Vanek or Weiss etc is the return package.
I don't have a problem trading him. My problem is with these Playstation proposals involving 2nd pair dmen, 3rd liners and late 1st rounders.
For every Colon or Herschel Walker trade, there are hundreds of Gretzky-Thornton-Rickey Henderson types where a star is traded and the GM who trades them is either fired or reassigned not long after.
Could you imagine if HFboards was around in 1996 with the Gretzky trade?
They would have thought Keenan was hosed trading Johnson, Tardiff and Vopat (and Zultek)
You rarely win those kinds of trades. sather knows that.
I'll side with Sather on this one.
