This thread is hilarious.

Go on a loosing streak and everyone wants to trade our 20-23 year old on the rise players.

One part of me just wants them to take pennies on the dollar and trade one away only to watch that player go on and have great success. I bet those same posters would be ripping management down the road for such, what these posters will call "idiotic trades", even though it is fans like you putting pressure on management to make such stupid trades.

It's my belief you never trade players like this unless it's for a big overpayment, an over the top addition at trade deadline (ala Erat for Forsberg) or a 1 for 1 young guy trade to get another young player at a different position, ala Yakupov for Seth Jones, which I would support.
