Whats wrong with trading Carle for someone like Bouwmeester? Or do you mean Carle, Giroux and Parent? No team will give up that much.

I voted Carle and Lupul and Parent or Carle and Lupul and 1st conditional.

Do people actually realize that Bouwmeester is top 10 d-men in the NHL in his prime?

If his contract demands are affordable how can anyone say no.

I mean all of us love Timonen, right? Well, Bouwmeester is 6.4 220lbs Timonen and 5-6 younger and can put someone like Malkin into the boards with out taking a penalty on every god damn shift.
