Well put. I think I'd take in even a step further and say for the Florida Panthers, I think that having a less talented veteran is far more important than having prospects with huge potential. It seems as if Florida is floundering a bit with young talent that is leaderless.

Actually I think that the same might be a danger for the Oil, if we go the route of trading Smyth and Smith. I suppose there is Staois and Moreau, but I think there might be a real void of great experienced players for the young guys to learn from.
