Who said it was about being emotionally attached? You're asking to trade our highest scoring forward who is a 37 year old UFA at season's end, our defacto #1 d-man and what would you expect in return? Certainly nothing to "cash in on". Certainly nothing that would make us a better team without them.
It has nothing to do with emotion, but everything to do with keeping our team competitive for the long run. I'm not saying we don't have tradeable assets, but those offering up Elias, Greene and Clarkson are not thinking clearly or reasonably as to how to make this team better.
