Honestly, I don't. The assumption is that either of them is truly NHL ready, which is a big question mark. And the fans in Columbus aren't going to tolerate trading Rick Nash in exchange for a bunch of futures, particularly if there's no real immediate help. The exception would be if it's someone who's about to break out.

My top few would be something like Winnipeg (Enstrom, Burmistrov, 9th overall), Boston (which I've already gone into), Washington (both first-rounders, rights to Vokoun, and one of Galiev, Orlov, or Green)....honestly, there's a very small number of teams that have both the short-term and long-term help that would make sense for both sides.
