Sauer can play as high as a 2 or as low as a 4.

The pick position is still useful.

And you are way way off about the G prospects.
Stacjer/Talbot could compete for a back up now, and for starter with another year of experience. This is especially so if Kabibulin goes for some return to a contender.

2 effective shut down + for 1 sniper. Not as as your would suggest.
Now open your eyes and be amazed...
Not worth it for Hall. Girardi is a good, not great, defenceman. This is a quantity for quality trade that the oilers just can't do. Hall is a special special player. I equate it to something like Petry + 2012 2nd + Lander for M. Staal. Petry is a good young player with top 4 potential. Lander has 2nd line potential. The 2nd will net you a B+ prospect. Deal? No? There's a reason the winner of a trade is usually gauged by what team gets the best player.
Keep your all star defenceman...cause Hall ain't movin.
