Find a team who can give up a guy like that without ruining their defensive lineup (tough
), and also needs firepower up front and you have the beginnings of a deal. Other than that, you'll have to expand your search to guys in their later 20's. That doesn't mean the big 4 aren't worth that much, but, rather, it means that every team has unique needs, and winger-for-defenseman trades are an awkward start.
Good post. I could see the following as options due to other teams depth. And even then all teams would be very hesitate to move such valuable blueline pieces. And they may not be exactky what youre hoping to get.
Yandle. I dont see them moving OEL.
One of Enstrom or Bogosian.
McDonagh or Staal. I think theyd want to keep Girardi, MDZ isnt good enough.
Edler. But he's a pending UFA
