I'm much more concerned about the situation at RW. I can't see any way to patch that situation outside of bringing in guys like Brad Boyes and hoping for fluke seasons. Seriously, right now our right wingers are Attaboy - whom heavily relying on would be a mistake given his youth - and (assuming we resign him) Dorsett. And that's it.

Frankly, our top-6 forward depth is such that I don't think it's possible for us to trade Brassard without suffering mightily. I'm not averse to trading Methot to attempt to address that, but then we need a spare shutdown blueliner in case of injuries or regression. (I wouldn't mind having a spare without trading Methot, but, well, Moore needs ice time, right? )


If Nash goes, of course, then all this goes up in the air depending on the return.
