[QUOTE=LeftCoast;36951483]Trevor Linden was a "warrior" and one of our leading playoff scorers in the Dallas series in 2006. He put up 15 points the following year and retired.
For many players, the fall off in skills is precipitous. Doan hasn't shown that massive fall off (yet), but you don't trade a 25 year old first round draft pick for a guy who MIGHT have 2 seasons remaining in his career.
Hmmm when was lindens last good offensive season? Linden was not a good offensive player for years before he retired
