I would give up a lot for these two and the Canes would be asking for a lot.

Gleason + Ruutu for Bickell, Lalonde and Pirri or Beach + picks if necessary. Would not give up our 1st for 2012 since the draft is pretty stacked.

We get immediate upgrades in our top 6 and top 4 and the Canes get players that are almost NHL ready and should have a chance of making their roster for next season + Bickell who can still become good.

Stalberg-Toews-Hossa
Sharp-Kane-Ruutu
Carcillo-Bolland-Frolik
Brunette-Kruger-Smith/Mayers

Keith-Seabrook
Gleason-Leddy
Hjalmarsson-Montador

Crawford
Emery

That's the Cup favourite right there.
Can someone explain to me why Ruutu is so wanted?

Guy was freaking awful his final year here and had absolutely no chemistry with either Toews/Kane

If he was acquired one of those guys would be his C + He is streaky as hell (Still)
