To move him at all during the season has to be for the right return. A quality d-man has to come back our way along with a scorer at a minimum. For anything less, keep Suter as our "rental" and try to get something for his rights after the season.
Not sure how it is a big "what if" due to the fact that we got a Peter Forsberg at the end of his career and gave up 3-first round picks. One actual first round pick, another one that had developed to the point of being NHL ready, and a third that was a few years away from being NHL ready. And that was for a rental player...

So for Suter, who is entering his prime, I most definitely think we can get a 2nd (or even 3rd as long as he is an upgrade over Boullion and Hillen) pairing dman, a top 6 forward ready to contribute now and a 1st round pick. No doubt....
