What Will The Going Rate Be For A Good Player?

from Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province,

Vancouver GM Mike Gillis better wake up.

If he’s going to get an aging player who was good a couple of years ago he’d better hurry before the Pittsburgh Penguins acquire them all.

Pittsburgh GM Ray Shero had his fans applauding his moves to get Brenden Morrow and Douglas Murray, but NHL executives won’t have quite the same reaction after seeing him deal three draft picks and watching a B+ prospect go for two wilting question marks.

If this is the cost of a couple of dubious complementary pieces, what exactly is it going to cost to get a good player?
