The point that I am trying to make here is that there is a reason why small players don't get good trade value. Every other team in the league doesn't care for small skilled, players, but somehow we always manage to get the small guys who aren't physical.

Now lets put this into perspective. What do you think would happen if Bergevin put Gallagher on the trade market? We would get offers! Not just a draft pick, maybe even a second line roster player. Why, because he's physical and brings more to the table than Desharnais.
