We traded away gleason for 3 reasons:
a) Smolinski was available.
b) He didn't want to sign anyway - the club doesn't want players like that on the team.
c) They don't have a need for top-level defense prospects.

How about these proposals tnrman:
Todd White + Peter Shastlivy for Scott Upshall + Richard Stehlik.
Shastlivy for Klein
White for Klein + Stehlik
Don't touch Richard Stehlik. The guy stinks. I said it before last year's draft when people had him at one point in the first round, and I say it again now. The guy lacks the defensive hockey sense to be an NHL d-man. Ya, he's big, and has a hard shot, but he's stupid. Upshall would be interesting though.
