However, if anyone here had the capacity to see the team and make moves in the same manner people hired within the organization do, they'd probably have a job in hockey rather than posting here. With that being said, should we just curb all discussion of trades and roster movement because no one here is really qualified to be an NHL GM? Obviously not, so it should be expected that there will be a myriad of conversation that sounds nice, but isn't really well thought out.
Im not asking for NHL executive-type analysis here. Just a basic understanding of values of a player, terms on contracts, etc.

Trading for, and then extending, a beat up Ryan Clowe would be a ****ing disaster. Yet, too many people dont see that.
