If an acquisition for a scorer is to be made I would look at Carter and deal Bernier, Martinez, and a pick to get him. I think that is a steep enough price to pay for Carter.

You finish the season out and re-evaluate in the off season. Then if you want to move Johnson you look to do it for more depth on the wing. Something like JVR for Johnson after your medical staff has determined JVR to be healthy, or Johnson for Grabner + a pick/prospect from the NYI.

You may even take a swing at Parise after acquiring Carter. Chances are slim, but would you rather throw Nash money at Nash, or Nash money at Parise?
Agreed. A deal for Nash handicaps us both in the assets required to get him and in salary. I'd rather go after Carter, then whatever else is possible in the future than go all in with Nash.
