There's no way a trade ISN'T coming. I could see a couple of our D prospects being packaged for a forward, and I think it will happen this summer. We can now put together pretty tempting offers for guys like Colin Wilson (if they move Suter/Weber), Luke Adam, etc. Not necessarily front-line players, but guys who can be good complementary players for our team.
We can also let these guys improve their stock and trade them for 1st & 2nd rounders at next years' (very good) draft.
