I'd do Huskins and a 2nd for him but I doubt he waives his NTC for San Jose. He will have a choice of destinations that includes Dallas and Detroit. I'm fairly certain both teams can field a competitive offer plus get Langenbrunner's consent.

However, if that trade was made, it'd be doable and they'd arguably be better on the blue line for it.

Marleau-Thornton-Heatley
Clowe-Couture-Setoguchi
Mitchell-Pavelski-Langenbrunner
McGinn-Nichol-Mayers

Murray-Boyle
Vlasic-Demers
Wallin-Braun

In terms of helping the blue line, I think this makes them better but it carries with it a lot of risk. I'd rather keep Huskins over Wallin but that's not practical. Keeping both is pointless and most likely a hindrance to the team's success. However, I think Braun has earned a spot in the lineup and I believe he, like Demers, will benefit greatly from being in regularly and getting playoff experience.
