Either way though, I think it comes down to what would you rather have: A 21-year old defenseman who is either at or on the brink of elite status; or a potential elite/solid center, potential elite/solid defenseman, and a youngish speedy winger who has scored 35 but is coming off a 20 goal year.

If the answer is the former, it can't hurt to at least make the offer. Even if you are 99% sure Phoenix won't consider it. Worst case scenario is they say "no," and you are back where you started with two elite prospects and a solid young winger. Best case, you now have an elite defenseman to add to your already young core. On top of that you are still pretty stocked with quality prospects(Nelson, Kabanov, deHaan, Donovan, Mayfield, Nino... if you want to call him a prospect, and another 1st in the upcoming draft).

Moral of the story is, even if you think it's stupid to ask, you still should ask.

That's when you break out the Billy Madison "No I will not go out with you!"
