Would you be interested in Regher++ for Eriksonn? Or Regher+ for Neal?
I was thinking something around a prospect not named Backlund and a high end pick not our 1st, maybe 2 seconds next year?
Also just out of curiosity what would it take to get RIchards out?

Dal: Regher, Stajan,3rd rnd 2011, Niemesz
Cgy: Brad Richards (Dallas Conditional 2nd if he doesnt resign)
TJ Brodie is coming back

to Car:
Jamie Benn
2011 4th rd pick/mid level prospect/Segal

Dallas gets the PMD they need in Pitkanen, who can also act as a PPQB if somehow Richards ends up somewhere else, or for the 2nd PP unit. Also get a great character guy in LaRose who can also chip in some points, can fill in on the top 6 if needed, and has a bit of a physical edge to him. Think a younger Ott.

Carolina gets a young winger who would fit into the top 6 right away, taking away the need to throw Samsonov/LaRose in there (nvmd the fact that LaRose would be going back in the trade) when they arent true top 6 talent. With Carolina well on its youth movement, this instantly helps the forward portion of that movement without having to wait for much development.


to Dal:
Joni Pitkanen
Sergei Samsonov
2011 5th

to Car:
James Neal
2011 2nd

Dallas again gets its PMD/PPQB#2 in Joni, and gets a former Calder winner in Samsonov who fits in the top 6 ok, but doesnt put up enough consistent offensive numbers anymore to take a full time spot there. Plays well in the bottom 6, and actually seems to put up MORE offensive numbers on the 4th line for some reason. He is a great dangler, sick stick skills, and can still snipe here and there.

Carolina gets a little older version of Benn who could fit in directly on the top line with Staal. Not quite as high an upside as Benn, IMHO, but has the skill at this point to fit on Carolina's top line with some 2nd line time with line shuffling.

I dont do a lot of proposals so please dont be too rough haha
Jamie McBain is coming our way if you want Neal
