Injury insurance, plus a steady righty to play with Ballard as insurance against Tanev not progressing as quickly as we all think he will.

I would would be very hesitant to give up any of our recently acquired pieces, for the first time in Jackets history we seem to have really solid depth. Additionally, you would almost have to take back Steve Mason in order to make the money work.
Brassard wouldn't be terrible, but isn't he a center? Can he play wing? Or would he be more the 2c/3c I mentioned? If you really are low on playmakers, I'd personally accept a top six player with size...just Umberger and Kesler kind of have that hate/hate thing going.

Savard I thought would have been top five in the prospect pool, ie not likely available, but if he might be, I'm not one to complain.

Boll is a fine addition, and I'd much rather him to Gillies. I can't say either holds a lot of value, but again, a small added extra could work for us as well.

Mason can work for us, cash wise. Worst case scenario, we could always flip him for picks or a player later, but as a back up to Schneider I think we could do worse.

If any or all of the pieces mentioned are possibly in play, I've heard worse offers.
