I disagree... We are in a perfect position to trade away our "leading" scorer. He can't score anymore! Strike while the iron is hot! Anyone in Albany can come up and take ice time and do the same not scoring Clarkson does now...
Clarkson can't score anymore? That's not true.
Clarkson got insanely lucky to start the year. That luck was not going to be sustained. Clarkson's true talent level is a 25 goal scorer, which he is still on pace for.
I would give up a first for Burmistrov. I know it means we wouldn't have firsts two years in a row... but this team's biggest problem is young forward prospects. Alex would be a very young talented forward that can play immediately.
What are peoples stance on trading Josefson? With Henrique and Zajac we had a place for him, but now with the rise of Loktionov I dont know so much anymore. Im much more comfortable trading him now then I would be at the start of the year if we can improve this team.
