It's tempting to move one to fill a need elsewhere. At some point (ie- when Del Zotto and Erixon are capable of playing top pairing minutes consistently) that may be a move that can be made. This season is not the right time.
I agree. The best way to about this is keep Staal, sign Parise as UFA (if he becomes one, which I believe) or just give Kreider a spot next year. This way we can keep our #1 defensemen and we get a great player in Parise or we get a great prospect LW in Kreider showing up and blowing people away *knock on wood*.

Maybe we should just sign a rental LW then in the offseason go for Parise or give Kreider a spot. Would cost less and I wouldn't mind Kreider or Parise on our LW.
