To me, if they can upgrade Gilroy, I would be ecstatic. I think Phillips makes a lot of sense for something like that. Solid veteran who has playoff experience. Play him 17-20 minutes a night and let him help solidify the defense. No need to play him top-pairing.

Gilroy + WAS 2nd for Phillips

On forward, I honestly don't see anyone worth taking a shot at. Wolski was the move that made a lot of sense. Depending on the health of the club I wouldnt be overly upset with moving a player like Christensen for a draft pick just to get something for him as I dont see him around next season anyways.
Phillips makes absolutely no sense to me. If you're going to upgrade a D slot, we need a puck mover, not yet another stay at home defenseman. Kaberle makes the most sense, but I have no interest in the delusional cost I am certain that Burke will expect. He'd go a long way in fixing the PP, but ultimately, I don't think Kaberle gets traded due to what Burke will be looking for (assuming of course that Kaberle even waives his NTC).
