This is why I was pushing hard for Marc Staal at one point. However, now that all of his brothers play in Carolina, I think he's a lock to go there too once his contract is over.
I'm not so sure about trading solid NHL assets for a prospect defenseman like Gormley. I think I'd rather just keep everyone and play Cole until we get closer to the trade deadline.
I also don't think JayBo is going to get pried out of Calgary for a draft pick. He is a -really- solid defenseman, salary cap and lack of grit notwithstanding. I mean, don't you think the Red Wings will put together a somewhat attractive package for him if they lose out on Suter? They need defenseman in the worst way. The Wild need huge help on the blueline. Hell, the Predators will need help if Suter leaves. The list goes on and on. This alone will drive the price for a guy like JayBo -way- up. I wonder about Feaster sometimes, but there's no way he allows JayBo to leave without a top 6 forward coming back, preferably a center.
