2nd Favourite Team

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>AndrewPawlack</b></div><div>I'd say both trades are fair value but from a future standpoint both of these trades are extreme win soon trades, like if we have had a solid aging playoff core that continues to fail (like Boston could've made but they didn't have the prospects and it's too late now, or if Colorado loses again this year), not a rebuilding team not even in the playoffs yet. I wouldn't mind these if both player's stay but these are both a major bet that without a cup would **** the team royally for the coming years when deals are expiring.
Situations like these worked for Tampa, Pittsburgh... emptying out their prospects and picks for multiple cups. Tampa is still relishing, but Pittsburgh is just beginning the downfall of their glory days and now have no future besides the remaining years of Crosby and depth players they pull out of their ass
Also just Chyrchrun doesn't solve last year's defense. This team would probably make the playoffs, but wouldn't be a cup contender yet.
This is also gambling that a piece like Sillinger will be better than Kent. Too early to tell for either, you can only base it off of this year's small sample size, especially small for Kent. But, that anonymity of Kent's future could hold a lot of value if he doesn't pan out, Sillinger vice versa</div></div>
So I suggested Johnson over Sillinger for the fact that even though he's Canadian, he was born in Columbus so there is that hometown connection there with him. I think both players are pretty similar in potential and I like both.
