I don't think anybody is saying that all the young guys are untouchable. But rather that they shouldn't be traded for peanuts. Which should be obvious, except that it isn't to some folks.
What a lot of arguing about trades and such comes down to is that:
Everyone has different ideas about what young guys are untouchable and which ones are.
On top of that, each of them are valued in different ways by different fans. Sometimes they are very over-valued and sometimes very under-valued.
Additionally, sample size of performance with younger guys makes the valuing of these guys even more difficult, especially by armchair GMs like ourselves.
As for peanuts, I prefer lightly salted, dry roasted. Yum.
