In the past, Kyle has been completely opposed publicly to trading one of the players, today however, he shared each finally opened up to the idea.

When asked about the Core Four, Dubas offered the following answer:

I would consider anything with our group here, that would allow us a better chance to win the Stanley Cup. I would take nothing off the table at all. And I think everything would have to be considered.
