If Loki is on the wing though, we'll just have to many guys hoovering around and not near enough spots. I could see a guy like Lewis or Richardson + a pick for another offensive forward to play wing.

Gagne-Kopitar-Williams
Loki-Richards-Brown
Penner-Stoll-XXXX
Clifford-Lewis/Richardson-Hunter/Moreau/Westgarth

I expect Lewis would have more interest, just because he's younger, cheaper and likely more upside than Richardson. Lewis + pick for a struggling winger who needs a change of scenery and can play on the 3rd line?

What about Glencross or Bourque for Lewis+2nd? I think it'd cost more than that, unless Calgary really wanted to dump salary in a hurry.
Yeah, we're deep at center (Kopi, Richards, Stoll, Lewis, Fraser and Lokti), there's no need to add another center. We could use a solid 3RW assuming one of Penner, Parse, Richie, Clifford or Moreau can fulfill the 3LW.

I would holdoff on trading Lewis as he has yet to fulfill his potential value but then again, I guess I can say the same about Penner and Parse as well. Eventually, someone will get traded. I just hope we get fmv for him/them.

Actually, someone that can fetch fmv and is still in demand would be Clifford.
