This. The pro scouting has been abysmal. It's not about "always selling low". It is about not recognizing when to sell high. Not recognizing when an emerging asset should be swapped for a similar asset in terms of value.

Schenn for JVR. Goligoski for Neal. When was the last time the Rangers made a deal like that? Korpikoski for Lisin? Tyutin for Zherdev? I rest my case. It's like those deals scared them into sitting on their hands and "letting the kids develop" without any semblance of projection or addressing organizational deficiencies.
