That post makes much more sense than anything else presented in this thread.

You guys have to realize one very simple thing: it's not possible to trade away all of your dead wood for picks and prospects. If it was possible, a team would have done that already. You want to trade away some vets and underperformings guys? Fine. But expect to take on similar contracts in return. Lateral moves at best.

I remember Bergevin saying in an interview that cap hit and term are the first two things mentioned between GMs when a trade is remotely being considered. GMs are not taking on dead cap space for picks and prospects. Forget it.
