i would much rather have salmela, and a 2nd round pick

you just don't trade for something you don't need

for the first time in pretty much forever the majority of our players were on the team the season before and you want to change that?

if we're a month into the season and peverley only has 2 goals and 3 assists we have a problem and we might reconsider a trade like this but as of now we don't need zubrus so there is no need to give up something we do need(salmela) to get him

maybe if the deal was zubrus for white and nothing else the thrashers would do it but it's no so they have no need to do it
They need more physical and defensively responsible forwards who can contribute to a forecheck and a PK. The only one in the top 6 is Little, and Antropov underachieves in that regard.

Do you really see White as less important than Salmella? He's a dirt cheap 60-70 point center, Salmella is a 3rd pairing defenseman who mans the point on the PP and might, keyword might, become top 4 caliber if his defense significantly improves.

Antropov is much more one dimensional offensively than Zubrus, and yet they signed him.
