HKSR Posted February 7, 2022 Share Posted February 7, 2022 So a bunch of you clearly want to trade Miller right now while he's just entering his prime. Out of curiosity, who else can you think of that was traded in their prime and was hugely beneficial for their team? Ryan O'Reilly? When he was traded from Colorado, he was 24 and yet to break out. When he was traded from Buffalo, he landed Buffalo-- Sobotka, Berglund, Thompson and a 1st (Ryan Johnson) Martin St Louis? Nope, he was traded at the age of 38 years old (I was actually a bit surprised when I read this too lol). Mark Stone? For Lindberg, Brannstrom and a 2nd (Egor Sokolov) ... still a bit early, but man, that doesn't look good. Matt Duchene at 26yo? For Turris, Hammond, Bowers, Round 1 (Byram), Round 3 (Stienburg) ... if Byram doesn't get his concussion issues under control, this doesn't look good. Matt Duchene at 28yo? For Davidsson, Abramov, Round 1 (Lassi Thomson) ... yikes... Max Pacioretty? Tatar, Suzuki, 2nd (Fagemo) ... this looked a lot better a little while ago, but it's not looking so great anymore. Can you think of a player traded in their prime where the return actually benefited the team that much? Might be good to temper our expectations of a JT Miller trade. I think we may be setup for disappointment. 1 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
