Knuble for a 3rd also seems possible because this has been a sudden off year after years of steady production and his experience/leadership is still there.
Vokoun for a 2nd & 3rd.. he still has the reputation that he can be elite, for a team like the Flyers that has everything else could easily be worth it.

And since you made me justify those values, please go ahead and post your estimates, too, if you're confident that I'm so far off.
I didnt ask you to justify or if they were possible...I asked if you would make those trades.

people keep pointing to lesser trades for D, use some sort of crazy math, then produce the result of 1st or 1st+...or my fave, 1st ++ when talking about Wideman.

if SJ had moved Dan Boyle (for example) for that kind of return then I think you guys may have something....a team giving up a lot for an offensive minded D.

The logic that if lesser player (Oduya) netted a 2nd/3rd then cleary that means a team would have given up a much bigger package for Wideman doesnt work.

maybe....just maybe playoff bound teams didnt want to give up that much for a skilled but poor defensive player, who is a pending UFA, for a playoff run...especailly when they could add depth for a much smalled price
