Let me be totally honest here. You have a 100 point player in the WHL that you're offering up for a 2nd round pick or a prospect.
Can you name any other players in the WHL that scored around 100 points recently basically on one leg? And where did they get drafted again?
Oh that's right. 1st overall this year. But hey, Sam Reinhart only needs to hurt himself once and he'll go for a 2nd or prospect.
Hey, Virtanen at 17 came close to a 50 goal season right? But his shoulder is hurt. Think we can pawn him off for a 3rd to some unlucky team?
See what I am getting at? There was NEVER any substance to any Shinkaruk rumour. Nor can you honestly say with ANY credibility that Benning doesn't like him when Benning has stated the exact opposite more than a few times.
But hey, I got a penny now
