We have a lot of 3rd line prospects that could be 2nd liners but our window of opportunity does not allow us to wait for them. Ideally, I would move a package of prospects not named Josi or Ekholm for a bryan little or a Paul Statsny or a Jussi Jokinen. I would be willing to move both Ellis and Wilson if the right deal could be made. Statsny may cost more than the other two, but it is doable. I would not move any of the big three to make this move happen. If we can land top 3 talent without giving up Josi or Ekholm, but without removing one of our current top players or the big three, I would do it, but that scenario is unlikely to happen.
Poile is that you?
I tend to agree but to make it to the next level we need a top 3 talent, IMO. If it means we lose a top 6 player we already have albeit but we have no top 3 talent in our forward core. Id trade pekka and a top sixer (itd be hard to part with marty but if it was the right deal id do it) for the right person, it could make us lethal.
