I think Whitney and Jones to BOS gives them two players that would be a perfect fit for what they are looking. Could Jones and Whitney for worth BOS 1st since it will be in the high 20s.
No to any trade involving Jones. This is the type of player we need more of and I see him being here long term. Trading him for prospects is a huge step backwards (unless we're going for a never ending rebuild).
Lets just say that EDM loses its next two games and are out of the playoffs. What do you guys think legit we could get for the following players and what team might be interested in them:
Smid - He does not resign and EDM and wants too much money.
Whitney - He is no longer part of the future
Jones - UFA Harti can replace him and we can see what he has
Hemsky - It is Hemsky he is always on the block.
I know a lot of people are saying we don't need prospects and picks but remember in the off season those prospects and picks can be used to get pieces that we can use like puck moving dmen.
