There really isn't any rush for a trade unless it suits Bryan's expressed desire for a forward.

They could stand pat with 8 D but it would be hard to sit out 2 D each game and not very good for Rundblad's development if he sits out too much. They could rotate Lee and Rundblad depending on the opponent and try Carks on the 4th line to give them all game play but the only guy he could likely push out is Konopka who has looked pretty good lately. Unless Carkner needs to rehab a few games in the AHL the other short term logical move is to send Rundblad down. That should test his mettle.
