I think there will be a trade. Like I said yesterday, Jan Hejda could be a candidate. Again, while he had a solid(ish) year, he's 34 and was -17.
As evidenced by a number of signings today - Souray at 3.66, Allen at 3.5, Kuba at 4.0 - I doubt a team desperate for defense will have any qualms about paying Hejda 3.25 for a few seasons. Even though I don't think it's the best idea, remove Hejda from the picture and Greg Zanon at 2.25 million isn't looking so strange, is it?
I think Sherman has a few defensive upgrades in mind and wants to keep his options open, so he signed a solid depth guy that he knows will be useful no matter what ends up happening. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'll be shocked if Colorado goes into the season with the seven veteran defensemen they have signed/hold the rights to.
