My point was more that it's all-in for this year, not for next year or subsequent years. Joe Morrow is an excellent skater - he'll be a John Moore type player really, so I think they gave up a solid asset there. Add in the other pieces they traded, and they really gave up quite a bit to go all in this year. As Samkow mentioned, losing those draft picks will hurt even them.
They still have Sidney Crosby, though...
