I know I made a suggestion about the possibility of acquiring someone like Derek Morris from Phoenix. There's a 2.6 million tag, but I'm thinking that if we offer Phoenix draft picks, a prospect (Potulny?) and an expiring contract of a player (Brashear?) that might be enough to get him. Phoenix has a lot of depth at defense and I'm thinking Morris is going to be on the move again. The draft picks (maybe something like two of our 2nds, a 3rd, a 4th and a 5th) and the prospect (I really think Potulny is going to be a good one) offsets anything in terms of acquiring the expiring contract.

That leaves a nice core of Johnsson, Desjardins, Pitkanen, Rathje and Hatcher. It also means we won't have to dress Therien. As well, it gives us the luxury that if, and that's a big if, we decide to deal one of our defensemen for scoring, we can move Morris up to play big minutes.
