For #7 overall, you're going to have to knock Winnipeg's socks off. (ie, not Dan Girardi).

Everyone on these boards wants to get a big prospect or top pick, but never give anything but little bundles of low value pieces back.

Winnipeg is stacked on D, they are most likely interested in top end forward prospects (ie Kredier, Stepan). I know most NYR fans are loathe to give either of those 2 up.. and I doubt Winnipeg trusts guys like Thomas/Grachev/AA will turn out better than what might be available at #7 still... so, I don't think a deal gets done.

Winnipeg is in the middle of a rebuild, so for them to give up #7 overall is going to have to be pretty much a homerun offer. I don't think you'd be willing to make one.
