I'm all for the latter.

The problem I see with the former is that no "boon" is coming unless the team trades one of the Big 4 because those are the only players who can return something significant enough to be called a "boon." I just don't see any of those guys being shipped out at the trade deadline. I'd like it but I don't see it happening. Rather I see more deals like the Avery and some of the older defensemen shipped out for picks. Now that's far superior to trading away youth, but I don't se it as a genuine commitment to youth either.
