If your team feels that restocking the cupboards at the expense of the near future is necessary, they'll do it, but these trades don't make your team better in the present. The guy you're asking for is paying dividends for us right now, and we got him making the exact sort of trade that Letang would get. We needed to do it at the time, and we were prepared to wait the 3 to 5 years to get the benefit from it. Is Pittsburgh? I don't think they are.
