I'm not in favour of trading Aebischer, unless it gets us something that we can't get on the UFA market. I would be willing to trade Aebischer to get Lang, if it came to that, because I don't see a centre like Lang being available in this year's FA market.

But I don't really know how different Fedotenko is from Bulis, and I think that's one type of asset that is readily available on the UFA market. I'd rather keep Aebischer, either as insurance on Huet, or for a better trade, and just pick up a Fedotenko-like (or grittier, ie. Langenbrunner) UFA winger. For that matter, the Bolts might elect to not qualify Fedotenko to get their cap situation in order, and he might become a UFA himself. Or if that doesn't happen, they may be under the hammer to trade him away dirt cheap at the draft, cheaper than for Aebischer.
