We don't have the assets on defense that HF thinks we do. For the first time in probably damn near a decade we have depth, stability, and a modicum of talent back there. I do not see a viable trade option from our side at all, and have yet to see any counter opinion that makes me even begin to change my thoughts on this.
Trading Tallinder or Volchenkov would not hurt our chances of signing UFAs. Two years served is definitely a reasonable amount of time before being dealt.
