Lol, nice comeback. With that type of production, everything else doesn't even matter. Also lead the playoffs in points so you can't say he isn't performing when needed.
He is also one of the best face-off men in the league(Something that is SO underrated in hockey) and plays a stronger 2 way game and was huge part of great PK success early on this year breaking up offensive zone plays.
Condra is a right winger as is Stone & Noesen. I would rather have Stone playing on our 3rd line right wing next season instead of Condra. The following yr if Noesen is ready to play in the NHL then he would replace Alfredsson, that is if Alfredsson returns for next season then retires. For that reason, I think Condra is expendable at the trade deadline to make room for Stone.
Would you trade Spezza right now for Couture? I would in a heart beat.
That is my point, the value is closer then most of us would like to admit. I would certainly rather have a first line center who is 23 (might not be as good as Spezza now but is close) who can grow with our young team. Or even better draft one this year and have the best of both worlds.
