I'd prefer some younger talent, although MSL would be a great return. I am still iffy on where the grit and size is going to ft in this line-up. Nash. Kreider. No one else? And I wouldn't consider Nash physical AT ALL.
"Young talent" is just such a vague word.

It's definitely not a given that we are better of in 5 years by getting a low percentage lottery tickets as opposed to getting better short term. If we play well, out other pieces get more value. Our young players on the roster develops more. Etc.

There is a destinct risk that we would end up trading Cally for Enver Lisin II. There is ONLY downside with that deal.
