Parrish is a good winger, and Bates and Blake are quality but probably not top line wingers. Weinhandl and Hunter are real young, Bergenheim doesn't look like a top line finisher to me, Papineau and Mapletoft are centers, and Nilsson just got drafted. So the Isles have good depth, just no real top line guy to pair with Yashin.

I would think that a Satan-Niinimaa deal would work.

that deal wouldn't work from a number of perspectives, not the least of which is $. Besides, Satan simply isn't that good. What did he have last year - 27 goals? He is on pace for similar numbers this year.

Those are second line numbers.
