If you truly think in your heart of hearts that Barkov is going to surpass Baertschi, then that's fine, but I seriously don't understand how you can be so shortsighted that you can't see why trading a prospect who is committed to making this team has bad juju written all over it.

Players are one thing. Teams trade players all the time in an attempt to improve. Prospects are different. They take time to develop, and tossing aside the old one (that works just fine) just because a shiny new one comes along is a bad idea and bad karma.
Runblad was traded for a pick. It happens from time to time you are simply attached to Sven and refuse to trade him. Thats fine but stop acting like this create a huge wave around the nhl and players won't want to play here because we traded a prospect.

The pick was a 4th/5th rounder sure it might be good but that is pretty poor logic.
