Voracek isn't that far from where MPS will end up IMO. Adding in our 1st this year would be more than I'd pay. We could easily br trading away another Mike Richards or Simon Gagne with that pick and would any of you seriously trade away Voracek AND either Gagne or Richards just for MPS??? From a value standpoint and from our perspective ONLY, the most we should be willing to give up for MPS is Coburn and our 1st. That's it.

Now, from an Edm POV, they do have an abundance of young top end offensive talent. They can AFFORD to trade some of that away to bring in some defensive help. However, even though Coburn is a quality 2nd pairing dman who CAN play top pairing, he's not really good enough for them to be willing to trade MPS and hope they can get another quality forward with our 1st. If they were going to deal MPS they should be targeting someone like OEL or Rundblad or Cowen. They are about equivalent both talent and outlook wise.
