    Yeah, that's why I specifically said "shouldn't", not "wouldn't". :laugh:

    However, if it was a vet pairing that performed horribly, that **** would be stuck together and not even the jaws of life could separate them. Like Manning-Gudas was, for example.

    That sounds like how Hv Dkstl introduces himself at parties when he doesn't want to open his mouth and show his baked bean teeth.

    Rubtsov came to mind as a lame strategic offering for a Centre-starved team that would have a particular affinity for players in the Q, especially ones that have just won the Memorial Cup. I am less looking to dump Rubtsov when he is down than finding a decent player who plays a position of need for them.

    Other teams won't want to trade for Rubstov for the same reason anyone here would want to trade him.

    Unproven and coming off a down year, so we wouldn't get enough to make it worth trading him. Better to just stick with him and hope he has a better year next year.

    On a general scale, yes, of course. There is no reason to actively shop Rubtsov given his marginal value. But my point is that, in a conversation about an asset who would make sense for the Flyers, bringing up Rubtsov's name to a team in dire need of a C may hit on someone who would value him just enough to make that one specific deal work. The first round pick in my proposal would be the main piece, but for Hextall to say, "Here is a mystery-box player with a high enough pedigree that we chose him in the first round" could have appeal, particularly for a franchise with few quality prospects to speak of. If not, in this hypothetical scenario, Hextall moves on without any urgency to make a deal.
