Well why on earth would Phoenix deal him for a price that they feel is lower than what he's worth to the team?

It doesn't matter what other teams think he's worth.


He's easily their best sniper and he's been very reliable. They by no means have any wish of trading him. That would be like the Penguins trading Crosby right now. No way the Penguins want to unload him. It would take an incredibly sick package of assets.

A first line center or an elite 2nd line center who's also an elite shutdown center
A first pairing d-man
2 first rounders
a prospect

Sounds about right to me. No, Crosby isn't worth that much. But that's probably what it would cost for Shero to say "yeah... I'd make that move."

If you actually wanted to get them to give Vrabada up for futures I imagine it would be 2 first rounders or a first rounder and a good prospect.
