One, you can't trade Jagr as I said because he won't play anywhere else. That's Jagr. Two, you don't trade Shanny because if you call people like Dawes and Callahan up you need somebody to play them with that can help them develop. A 100% rebuild is not having a team void of vets to help develop prospects. You need vets to develop prospects. You can throw 4 lines of all kids out there. Three, my trade values were basically right on the money. The way Rosival has played this year, with his age and salary, you could EASILY get a mid to late round first and prospect for him. Teams are always hard up for defenseman. A second and a prospect for Nylander is pretty cheap. Look at what Doug Weight brought back and to be honest, last year he wasn't nearly as good as Nylander has been this year. He was also older.
You can't compare Immonen to Hollweg, for many reasons.... First off Hollweg is more defensive minded, actually hits people, and is not much of a scorer.... He also played on the third line for the Wolf Pack, he is on the Rangers because he is a force that takes other players minds out of the game.... While Immonen played on the first powerplay unit, and played on the top line, for his job was to score points for the pack..... Immonen is also a future second liner, who could play on the second powerplay unit, while Hollweg is a third/fourth liner who could possible kill penalties..... They are two totally different players, you can't compare Immonen's stats to Hollweg's, they play two different roles......
