We don't need to trade both.
If Carle and Versteeg together got us a 1st or a high 2nd and good prospect, I'd love to see Leino back and a big, physical 3rd pairing defenseman signed. Don't know if O'Donnell can come back one more time. Even if he does, it might make sense to go with 13 forwards and 8 defensemen again, if possible.

Hartnell-Briere-Leino
Read-Giroux-Carter
JVR-Richards-Nodl
Powe-Betts-Rinaldo
Shelley

Pronger-Gustafsson
Timonen-Coburn
Meszaros-UFA
O'Donnell, Bartulis

Bryzgalov
Bobrovsky


If 8 defensemen can be made to fit under the cap, I would be extremely excited to start the season like that.
