also considering the loss of Murray, Rolston and Knuble up front.. they might be more interested in a package around forwards, which I'm sure that NYI can come up with...
instead of Aucoin, what about Scatchard in the proposal? then add whatever parts necessary to even it out?...
getting Thornton, and still having Yashin and Peca down the middle, they could probably move Scatchard... or Parrish (which would then force the Isles to trade Scatchard or Peca in another deal to get a winger replacing Parrish??).
although, come to think about it... how would the Isles be able to carry those contracts?? Thornton at around $7mill, plus Yashin, plus Peca... something else would have to give.
Putting Scatch in makes sense, but for the $ reasons you cite, the Isles could not really bring in a guy like Thornton.
