I acknowledge we COULD win the Cup this year. COULD

I'm optimistic a repeat of last year's disaster with the Caps is not likely.
But we could also lose.

But, if add Kreider + McIrath next year, JT Miller the following and this pick that year or next, we should be able to totally kick ass, for multiple years. Totally.
Acknowledged, that is SHOULD, not a given.

I have been thinking aloud as to different possibilities as to having our cake and eating it too.

I am open to review any deal on its merits.
I don't think we should trade better assets for a rental. That is consumption.

I think we should trade a better piece and some depth to get an optimum asset.
That would be investment, likely to yield a premium.

The unresolved basic question, besides the players involved, is how to have the cake and eat it too, how to UPFRONT give up the minimum of assets we are using in this Cup run without giving up Kreider, Miller, McIlrath, or 2012 1st.

I am hopeful something can be created which is just enough to get approval from an Edmonton, a Montreal, etc, while still letting us hold most of our cards til after the season, in exchange for a little something extra (an added pick or prospect).

More on this later when I get a chance to work out the details...
