Less than a month away and by looking at our teams recent performances & plummeting status in the standings makes me think: is it really worth trading picks/prospects to contend with the team we currently have? Is a quick fix at the cost of our future really the best course of action? And this is all assuming that the player we acquire even pans out here.
What I'm going to suggest here may sound preposterous to some but due give it some thought: if mediocre play continues, why not trade out underperforming players for some future assets? The prices at the deadline sky-rocket with average players like Mike Fisher going for first round picks to teams trying to go for the cup. Maybe this way we can hold open our window of opportunity open for just a little bit longer. If this season turns out looking like a wash, i say trade the underperformers and bring a fresh outlook to the locker room.
For those of you saying we should still be buyers.. what player or trade do you think we should attempt? Im not saying that our only option is to sell this year.. Im saying that it may be our best way forward for this season. Thoughts?
