Obviously I don't have another method but to me using past players is silly because every player is different.
For the record I don't want to trade for Ryan because of the cost and I feel like there's bigger needs right now but I just feel like some of you guys are really undervaluing him and overvaluing our guys.
I actually think that Ryan would at least maintain that 30 goal streak playing on the first line with Giroux full time for a few more years. Putting him on Giroux's wing with Harntell or Schenn on the other side would be dangerous. Giroux would be the best passer and most creative player he has ever played with, not to diminish what getzlaf and perry have done.
Laughton-Couturier-XXX (shutdown line with offensive potential).
could both be amazing lines going forward but I would prefer the first one
