There's no need in trading defensive
like Urbom, Gelinas, Burlon, or Merrill because either (A) they all pan out and you can get more value for a proven NHL-er or (B) one or two don't pan out and you're thankful you didn't trade the good ones.
What we need to trade is an NHL D-man because we have 8 capable players. Get a forward in some kind of trade. Save the prospects for later and see what we have before making a deal.
How about trade a prospect D man for a prospect forward? I want one of the NHL guys gone too, but maybe we can do better if we add Urbom or somebody in that trade.
However I don't want something too big with the cap uncertainty, and uncertainty of what it will cost to keep Zajac, and Clarkson. I figure Tallinder, and a 3rd or 4th round draft pick can get us something a little more than a Ponikarovsky being we got Ponikarovsky for Joe AHL, and a 3rd or was it 4th round pick?
