Phil_314 Posted November 8, 2015 Share Posted November 8, 2015 In offering a contract, prospect and non-1st pick, the players they receive better fill some need on the team for them to even consider moving that blue-chip young guy when he's cost-controlled and will likely develop into a stud shortly. Even with the inclusion of the bad contract it's hardly incentive to move a blue-chip guy, whereas they may move a prospect with lower upside to get rid of him but not a young gun. Blue-chip guys are normally only moved for roster guys in their prime who can fill needs right away (e.g. Brayden Schenn for Richards as 2nd C, Eakin and 2nd for Ribeiro who became 2nd C)Instead, in discussing about us and Philly, maybe we can replace the blue-chipper with their 1st?For instance, 1st and Luke Schenn (pending UFA) for Hamhuis (pending UFA) plus contract player to meet a need, and maybe middling prospect/ pick to even things out might work as an alternative. Interesting suggestion, taking their bad contract to get an asset. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
