I still think Denis was brought in to be the back up and Halak is going to be part of a deal to bring in a Dman for us.
If you trade two Ds, we need to add another one just to get to 6, nevermind the 7 that most teams will carry this year. Also, if you sign Demitra and Sundin, you're going to end up with Latendresse on the 4th line, and a glut of 4th liners, even after you let Chipchura rot in Hamilton. Just doesn't make sense.
Besides, I doubt Demitra takes a short term deal at 3.5. Just look at what other guys are getting. Even still, I don't think the math works out. Gainey's also pretty much said Denis is bound for Hamilton because he needs to rebuild his game. Hate to say it, but you're dreaming in technicolor on this one.
