New Jersey traded their 1st 2010. They're in the postseason even after acquiring Kovalchuk. (only mid-season 1st 2010 trade)

We traded our 1st 2010. We're still in playoff contention despite a slumping offense and a ton of injuries both offensively and between the pipes.

Toronto traded their 1st 2010. They weren't a playoff team to begin with, and that's exactly why they traded their 1st.

In fact, imagine where we'd be right now if we hadn't used that 1st to acquire Pronger?
Impossible to tell where we'd be.

I'd say our team would look like this:

Gagne-Richards-Knuble
Hartnell-Carter-Briere
JvR-Giroux-Lupul
Laperierre-Betts-Carcillo

Timonen-Coburn
Carle-??
Parent-Bartulis

Emery
Boucher

Don't know who would be that #4 defenseman, but offensively, we would be lethal.
