Maybe then we should throw in Staal, we don't want phoenix to get ripped off taking 2 stiffs from us. I think you are underesimating the value of both Baranka & Prucha.
Maybe after Baranka has 6 full years of development like Ballard had we can make a comparison. Ballard had 2 yrs playing Jrs in the USL, 3 in college and 1 in the AHL.
Baranka will be in the NHL later this year or next year for certain, 2 years ahead of Ballard and 2-3 years younger.

Prucha is the same year as Ballard, 24. What does Balalrd bring that we don't have in the organization? Is he Bobby Orr. Brian Leetch or Ray Bourque? If not, I'll wait and not overpay for something we already have thank you.
