What happens if we're out of a playoff spot? Do we offer a guy like Hamrlik for a prospect and a 2nd round pick? What about Mara? What if we're battling for a position and we sit somewhere in the 7-9 spot? Does Bob take a chance and trade for a rental that can give us a boost?
I'm betting nobody does, Waddel fails and Kovalchuck heads back to Russia next season.

Why would anyone be interested in Mara? Plus isn't there a unwritten rule that states you don't trade a player you just signed? ( Even if it's a 1 year deal )

I could definitely Mr. Gainey take a chance on a rental, specially with the kind of cannon fodder we can send the other way. ( D'Ago, SK, MaxPac, Price, Halak, etc... ) We aren't exactly short on players that aren't untouchable.
