were trading 24-year old Mike York and a pick for 30-year-old Rem Murray, picks and prospects for a 30-year-old Bure on his last legs. 25-year old Mikael Samuelsson and prospects for a disgruntled 30-year-old Alexei Kovalev.
It's clear this team needs offensive talent. I'm fully on board with trading for it, so long as the guys they target haven't obviously peaked already.
I think you're forgetting a piece in that Mike York trade...
