Trade Proposal Thread v4 - Trade or No Trade Edition

Don't shoot the messenger, but Eklund is floating the idea that the Habs and Avs may be discussing a Subban for MacKinnon deal. Now, I don't believe this for a second, but it's fun to discuss the implications of such a move.

He says MacKinnon is the kind of player we've been "craving for a very long time". While I would agree with that, would you be ready to give Subban up for him?

I'm going with an emphatic no, because unless Beaulieu is ready to step in right now and fill an important role on this team (which I don't believe he is), then we'd really expose our D. Not to mention that giving up on Subban could be a Roy-esque blunder in the long-run if MacKinnon doesn't become any better than a 2nd line player.

What do you think?

For anyone interested in reading more about this, it's over at HockeyBuzz. I won't link out of principle, because this is clearly hit-motivated rumor-mongering.
