Hmmm......Over/under on one of Franson/Sulzer/Laakso being traded by the deadline this year?
I am going to give it a 90% chance of happening.
I thought the same thing when we were carrying 8 one-way defensemen that one season... 'is this the year?'
I do think we should trade one. Though, I wouldn't mind trading someone with value to maximize our return. Sulzer/Laakso/Josi are pretty worthless (trade-wise), but Franson/Blum/Ellis could bring back some talent. It's time to cash in...
I don't know how you figure Josi is worthless trade wise, he was an early second round pick, and he has only improved his stock drastically since then. To be honest, he was a first round talent when we picked him that fell simply due to circumstance.
I also think Sulzer holds a decent chunk of value as well. Laakso's value is unknown at this point, so point conceded there.
