A prospect and a bottom 6 roster player?
I checked in with the Dallas board, pitching three possible trades (3rd + Bourque, 4th + Bickel, or a 2nd rounder straight up). They weren't enamored with any of the options. They were more interested in a prospect like Fasth.
That being the case, I doubt it would work. I like Robidas better than any of the FA options, but not SO much better that it would be worth trading one of our higher end B prospects.
