In response to NeelyOrrBourque's comment:
My point is Chowda, is that you can put the arguement both ways. I don't want PC to trade a Spooner, Subban & a Camera for Jarome, but if it needs to be one to help this team win now, so be it! I'm not saying to sell the future for the present. I'm saying to add a piece now & keep some pieces for later. Everything is a gamble no matter which way you go. However, right now in the present starring you right in the face is a team in your conference who's adding pieces with an 11 game winning streak, and nobody from the current roster that won 11 games in row is gone. It's not Feaster's hand that needs to be played here. He already knows his season is finished. He all ready knows he's losing his Captain now, or in July 1. It's PC play if he wants to stay in this poker game. He needs to gamble! And he may have to even take a bluff to stay in this game.
Here's my point nite :
1) From my point of view goaltending is the most important position on the team. They have strength in numbers currently there. But it has dwindled ( Thomas and maybe Khudobin also ). Subban is the best prospect at that position. In my opinion he has more of an impact on the outcome of games then any of the other prospects ( Koko, Knight, Spooner, Camara etc.) will ever have on a regular basis because of the position he plays.
2) He's a stud prospect. Barring injury he will play at the NHL level. When and at what level has yet to be determined. ( just watched him live on Sunday and loved what I saw ).
3) Trade a prospect forward. This is more of a dime a dozen position then goaltending is.
Very valid points Chowda, but the thing that I keep hearing is how Spooner is the one everyone wants, not Subban. So why is PC stalling on this if THAT is in fact the case. IMO in the limited role that CJ has allowed Spooner to play. I see some skill, but nothing that would make me balk at giving him up for an Iginla.
