The perceived Value of a good depends on the user.

For Duchene we are just witnessing a disconnect in value between the various potential users. For now there seems to be no bargaining range.
If you have no reason to sell, sure, ask whatever you want.

I don't see how this applies because there appears to be a good market for Duchene. Good market = fair offers.

And at this point it sure seems to be more to it that just wanting a change. Duchene is more like the house you must sell by a certain date.

At this juncture I'll take Maata if he's available. Pair him with Barrie
Way better than what we have now

I'd rather have the Islanders picks or Fiala+Kamenev...hell I'd rather have Murray than Maata, even without Bjorstrand or PLD coming over for Bigras + Morrison as well.

Eww Maata. I'd rather trade with the Rangers or the Kings than with Pittsburgh. There's absolutely nothing interesting for us over there. I sure hope we won't pay the "he won the stanley cup twice" premium on any of their journeymen.

Understandable but I'd doubt we get anything of significant value added to Murray just because of the way CLB views him imo
They probably say hey he's a young D , that's the main piece.
If we can get a good preds pkg then sure but again I highly doubt it

Slavin also is a very humble and religious person. Listening to the press conference, he mentioned how involved he was in the church in Raleigh, involved in the community, how they had become family to him, and how important it was to know he was going to be there for 8 more years. I'm not saying he took a discount, but also don't think he was trying to squeeze every penny out of the Canes because he wanted to be there for a long time.

Good for him but that's not exactly the most stable team out there. I'll be surprised if the Canes are still in Carolina in 8 years.

I'd rather have just the picks from the Islanders.

Does it REALLY matter what's on the team next year? I know we hope to be above humiliation level but otherwise?

Meh, I'm sure he and other players aren't Chicken Littles like many HF fans are. He mentioned it as part of his reasoning and I have no reason not to take him at his word.

If Duchene is starting the year with the AVS that means that it doesn't even matter for the FO who's there or how the players feel. They clearly don't care.
