If you're going to trade Doughty because you don't feel we'll be competitive again, you might as well deal Muzzin, Martinez, Toffoli, Pearson, Lewis, Clifford, and Nolan too. I mean, why do a half assed job when you're going to go full rebuild anyway?
I also liken this idea to the Wings dealing Lidstrom after the 2000-01 season, or the Penguins dealing Crosby after the 2014-15 season.
We suck, I'm not going to deny that, but there is a way out of the darkness without completely dismantling this team. It could involve a GM change, because the ****pot we're in now hangs all on Lombardi and his design of "Keeping the band together" instead of incorporating some new blood here and there and letting people walk. It may also involve a coaching change, although Sutter's just playing the hand he's been dealt by Lombardi and from what I've seen in LaDue and Kempe in their short time with us, Sutter hasn't been afraid to play the kids.
