Id even sweaten the pot some if it have to be done to make the deal (Avery? Gilroy? (id doubt it for a PO run...)).

Carlson is a guy who'd make perfect sense for us. Rightshooting, 6'3 D 208 lb D.

Down the road:
Staal-Carlson
MDZ-Sauer
McD-Girardi

He'll help our PP right away, while still being young. But his bomb would be of much value, and he can handle the puck too. He's defintiely on a another level then Girardi on the PP, even while only being 21 y/o.
It will cost a bit more than Anisimov to get Carlson. Carlson has a top pairing defenseman written all over him. Anisimov is more like a top 6 forward now and even in the future.
