Losing Tim Connolly, Joffrey Lupul, Matthew Lombardi, Clarke MacArthur, Tyler Bozak and David Steckel, I'd make that deal any day of the week and bring up Frattin, Gardiner and one or two of the other young guys to fill in, would be a big improvement.
On balance we would have a pretty even Cap Hit switching those players but a much improved Line-up and maybe even have room for another UFA signing.
