That is my point actually. Beyond Eller/Galchenyuk/Plekanec/Pacioretty/Gallagher/Subban/Price and our top prospects what would a team ask for in a blockbuster? A blockbuster would only thin out the players of value even further than the handful it already sits at. Habs don't have the depth of quality that a good team that is able to make big trades have. The Stars made their trade for Seguin after loading up in the 2013 draft.

For example. Sens traded Silfverberg/Noesen/1st for Ryan. It's easy to say we can match it but when you look at the Sens organization, they have built up their young depth to the point making this trade still leaves them with plenty of top prospects and young NHL players.
