Unfortunately, already NYI has a sufficient number of non-1st line wingers (Hunter, Comeau, Okposo, Bergenheim), so Upshall would be of minimal interest. Alberts is Sutton II, so no need there.

I do think Witt would fit like a glove on Philly's backline, but I do not see a trade. You're not going to move JVR, Giroux or Parent and, frankly, NYI needs to upgrade it's overall quality, not simply add more interchangeable parts.

I think the shrewdest thing Lombardi has done is saturate the organization's pipeline with young D. There will ALWAYS be a market for defensive talent, so he has the option of either promoting up to the NHL club, or moving assets in an area of depth to fill other roles.

As for NYI, I'd like to see Witt, Weight and Guerin (should he waive his NTC) moved at the deadline, along with Comrie (and Sutton). Reality is, however, outside of the first two names, I don't think they will garner much in return.
