It's not a horrible suggestion...
Getting Laraque would not be a bad thing, even if it was for Rachunek straight-up. He's a very good enforcer, and he can play the game well. And I don't see how getting Laraque displaces any youth. First, he's 27, so he's not old. Second, I don't know what young enforcer that I'd like to see out there 10 minutes a night who is currently fighthing for a position on this team.
As for Moreau...the guy's coming off a career year, and perhaps is starting to hit his stride. 17 even strength goals and three shorties are tough to come by. His stock has risen a bit as he's also a decent PKer and a decent 'checker' who would actually look pretty good on Holik's left side.
Obviously the package suggested wouldn't land those two players. You may be looking more like Rachunek, Lundmark and a second, to be more fair to the Oilers.
