I HATE giving away high draft picks but in this case I'd do it. It's far far better than when we traded a 1st for freaking Eminger. Just think if we could take back all of that sequence. We remove Matt Carle and Dan Carcillo from our team and add in John Carlson (our 1st rnd pick), Steve Downie, Scottie Upshaw + 2011 2nd rnd pick. Note that we'd have to give back the two 3rd rnd picks we got (Jacob Deserres & Simon Bertilsson).

Heck, I'd consider trading Carle + Leino for EJ. It would give us enough money to resign Zherdev if we wanted though I'd rather trade them Zherdev + 1st than Leino.
I wouldn't do that during the season because the difference between Carle and Johnson is far less then the difference between Leino and Carcillo. Our defense is cup quality without Erik Johnson, adding him is a luxury and I love the kid, it just doesn't make sense for them to do this season.
