Here's a brainstorm...

To NYR
Joni Pitkanen

To CAR
Ethan Werek
Conditional 2nd (turns into a 1st with an ECF trip)

Pitkanen is a legitimate puck moving defenseman, who basically is a lock to put up ~40 points across a full season. He's still relatively young @ 27, and he's a UFA at the end of the year. If the Canes are out of it at the deadline, which they likely will not be, I could see Pitkanen being moved for a return like this.

Of course, I would only do this deal if Richards became out of reach for us, because he should be priority numero uno. Otherwise, a puckmoving defenseman would be our second biggest need. I know everyone likes Werek, but we have plenty of players like him, he's redundant. Gotta give to get.

Thoughts?
