    Hell No, You don't trade a young C prospect like Joe Veleno for an aging 32 year old Logan Couture making $8,000,000 x 6 years. You didn't even resign RFAs Dennis Cholowski, Gustav Lindstrom, Adam Erne. Givani Smith Michael Rasmussen. Wallstadt is nowhere near NHL ready Vrana is grossly overpaid maybe 6 x $6,000,000 for him at the most. No thanks on Murray and Edler would rather have Oleksiak and or Martinez instead of them. This team is nowhere near a wildcard team.

    More of a .500 team likely ultimately

    But a very misguided strategy

    Idk if you're saying they should do it or just "what if"

    But with Couture never quite being worth 8M$ and now showing signs of decline at 31 it's really not great to unload the blossoming veleno for him naturally

    Also putting pressure on raymond / walls so early 😬

    I get the concept but probably not. Id move veleno for a legit #1 center but couture is just a bit to old for what's left on that contract
