No way. I like Bogosian, but the only way Thornton is traded for anything but a forward/group of forwards is if that defenseman is a franchise player. Bogosian, while a top-pairing defenseman and possibly a future #1, is not that.

Basically, we have Burns/Vlasic/Demers/Braun/prospects at defense. We have Couture and that's essentially it at forward (maybe Hertl). If Joe is traded, it's for forwards.
