Sure, if DW has a deal in his back pocket where he can flip Marleau or Cheechoo for a top 4 d-man, or just assets with a low cap hit and then sign Ohlund or the equivelant, that's fine.
I just think it's insane to trade a guy you're looking at getting 22-25 minutes on the blueline without a plan (and capspace) to replace him
I agree, couple of small corrections though: Marleau's cap hit is $6.3 and Cheechoo's is $3
