This is the problem with HFboards. Young players yet to play a single shift in the NHL >>> young, PRODUCING NHLers. Guess its a good thing that the Sens hung onto Daigle way back when, rather than trade him for a producing young NHLer, huh?

And Cowen IS already a 2nd pairing Dman, with 1st pairing upside. Monahan has 1C upside, but has to prove it before anyone calls him a 1 or even 2 C. That is why I'm saying Cowen has 1st pairing UPSIDE, not calling him a 1st pairing guy (yet).
Theirs no problem with placing high value on a player of Monahan's calibre, especially in the situation the Flames are in... and especially for a player who spent most of his career sidelined with injury. Thats russian roulette for the Flames org. High upside prospect > scraps.
