Especially with the new alignment, there are just too many teams in your division to not make deals with them, plus the impact of any one team in your division is watered down by their greater number.
Why trade in the division if you don't have to? The trade will be scrutinized if the Avs pick doesn't pan and out Bolland bolts. Also, theres so much parity in this league it just takes a new coach, one FA signing, etc. and you're closer. Who would've thought that the Islanders would've pushed the stacked Penguins team to game 7 this year?
