Winnipeg After:

Ladd - Jokinen - Wheeler
Burmistrov - Bolland - Little
Ponikarovsky - Antropov - Wellwood
Machacek - Slater - Thorburn

Bogosian - Enstrom
Byfuglien - Edler
Leddy - Stuart

Yes to both. Let's do it!

Get problem child prima-donna Kane out of here for good value - AND get rid of permanently disgruntled NHLPA poster-boy Ron Hainsey? I literally couldn't make that trade fast enough. No way Vancouver makes that deal though. I don't think they're looking for Hodgson 2.0...or to trade away the goalie they haven't poisoned their relationship with (yet).

And Bolland for drunk-driving-cover-upper, wildly inconsistent, albatross-contracted Pavelec, plus an AHL player and a 2nd rounder? AND we get Leddy as well? Holy smokes...Chicago probably likes this less than the Vancouver deal above.

Who on the Winnipeg side is saying no to either of these deals? I'm trying to see a downside. Loss of goal scoring, maybe? But Schneider + Edler alone probably saves us more goals against than 2 Kanes could ever put in the net.
