Without Hank we are a lottery team and perhaps the ping pong balls bounce our way and we end up with reinhart. I would also love to get a first round pick for MDZ. What use is an offensive d-man who can't quarterback a powerplay and can't shoot? I would take my chances with three first round picks in the upcoming draft.
I actually completely agree, particularly in light of his upcoming raise in salary, although I think the team around him is good enough now to not be a lottery team in his absence. I consider trading Henrik not because I plan to tank, but because I think the variance at the goaltender position is small enough that dumping $8M+ there is a mistake.
