Question to AB and Foppa: do you think any team made any kind of offer whatsoever for Svatos? If so, what do you think they offered? Same question regarding our expendable D-men.

Looking around the league at the trade deadline: Scott Walker (7th), Milan Jurcina (6th), Mathieu Schneider (6th + low prospect), Frederick Modin (7th), Petteri Nokelainen (6th), Stephane Yelle (6th), Martin Skoula (5th), Derrick Morris (4th), Aaron Ward (4th + Pogge).

When I look at that list, I would say in all honesty that I think Marek Svatos is less useful than all four forwards listed. Unfortunately, they don't make 8th round draft picks any more.

With defensemen, it's a little trickier to predict relative market value, especially since Salei hasn't been healthy and would have been a risky pickup.
