It was the same scenario with BMorrow yesterday. He could say, "I'm not going to trade Joe and will wait for a couple years until he and our 5 other top d-man prospects develop."

There are some teams which are happy to have two good D-man prospects and we have FIVE after we traded Joe Morrow.

There's no way all of our Dman prospects will play in Burgh. Some of them will be traded, sooner or later. It's just up to Shero if trades them now, and if so, which of them he would trade.
It's poor asset management to trade for him after yesterday. Do you realize in two years Pittsburgh has only one Dman signed right now (Martin)? After resigning Malkin to his deal, it will be imperative for two of these guys to step in and play. Trading two more along with a first wouldn't be smart. You need to see how these guys develop in the next year or two and it will all sort itself out.

Yesterday, Pittsburgh traded a high D prospect for a guy that could walk. No sense adding two more D prospects and a first round pick for another guy who more than likely will march right back to Calgary. Again, that is ****** asset management.
