EC to Dallas

Dallas needs to add a wee bit of salary to get above the capfloor with Pardy coming off the IR.
How about Eric Christensen (NYR - cap hit at 925.000) for a 3rd/4th rounder or a mid level prospect.
He is a good spare/3rd line C (all wings too) and quite good at shootouts...
If that would be a deal & Vincour & Larsen both get sent down // which is probable// - I believe the Stars just barely rise above the floor of $48 M (see below - btw The Stars are not in their correct positions but the Capgeek numbers ARE CORRECT):

Mike Ribeiro ($5.000m) / Loui Eriksson ($4.250m) / Brenden Morrow ($4.100m)
Michael Ryder ($3.500m) / Steve Ott ($2.950m) / Vernon Fiddler ($1.800m)
Adam Burish ($1.150m) / Jamie Benn ($0.821m) / Tom Wandell ($0.775m)
Krys Barch ($0.837m) / Jake Dowell ($0.800m) / Toby Peterson ($0.775m)
Radek Dvorak ($1.500m) / Eric Christensen ($0.925m)

Stephane Robidas ($3.300m) / Trevor Daley ($3.300m)
Adam Pardy ($2.000m) / Alex Goligoski ($1.833m)
Niklas Grossman ($1.625m) / Sheldon Souray ($1.650m)
Mark Fistric ($1.000m)

Kari Lehtonen ($3.550m) / Andrew Raycroft ($0.650m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $48,092,500; BONUSES: $0
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $16,207,500

If we were to do this - we can call up one of Newbury/Mitchell (not waiver exempt though - but doubtful they will be claimed) or Hagelin/Bourque when we need to. Or maybe Avery... once Staal is back and another defender is sent down (Erixon? as they do not want to ride him on the NYR bench)...
I think we should try to get something for him (EC) while we can and not have him wither away for nothing kinda like we did lately with assets such as Zherdev (Tyutin), Lisin (Korpedo), Weise (4th rounder 2008)... to name a few...
A 3rd/4th rounder may or not be worth what he contribute right now (needs to score on the shootouts if he has any use on the team imo - he blew his chance in Stockholm imo), but I think it is a good opportunity to manage assets and get something for the guy...

You decide -
  1. Is this a good move or not?
  2. Would Dallas do it?
  3. Does it help/hurt us?
