<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>pharrow</b></div><div>I love how you knock the guy for being NCAA level when Makar had basically the same kind of stats when he played in the NCAA.
Fact is Sanderson is a beast on the blue line. Hell team USA ability to actually win games tanked when he went down after his game in the Olympics where he basically drove team USA to beat canada with MB.
He'll be an instant 1st liner and a star at the NHL level. The whole college hockey to NHL star is frankly irrelevant. He's been great at every level he's played at, against any level of competition he's played at.
Making trades off of point totals on some website probably isn't the smartest thing to do.</div></div>

I don't knock at him for being NCAA level. I say that the trade won't happen because you don't trade a current top 3D during a cup window for a future maybe top 1-20D (+some other things that they don't need right now). It's just not the trade that avalanche would agree to in their phase. Even if the expected value is higher they just will not trade a current star for future right now. And with younger non-established players you never know what happens between now and when they are stars.For example look at Byram a very talented hockey player that was primed to be a star, but hes had a few concussions and is likely out for the rest of the season and for that reason cannot fulfill his potential/value (of course hope he will be well and can still realize his potential, just an example).
