They have been rebuilding for 5 years!!!
I definitely agree that Baie Comeau shouldn't be sellers. But I was thinking more in terms of tweaking.
Ciampini and Hardie could fill the roles of Bussieres and Noreau to an extent but also still be available as 19 year olds next season, where Bussieres and Noreau are likely to go pro.
You've pointed out that BC does not want Ciampini so that squashes that but this is the type of deal i'm hoping the Moose can find.
If a LW is brought into replace Ciampini he has nowhere in the lineup to play so I think he'd need to be dealt in the process.
As for Hardie, he's solid and we surely could use him as a 19 next year but this season if we bring in another Dman, as a Lefty I think he'd be the one to sit
Gillard(L) - (Hopefully a Right Hand Shot like Noreau)
Lewis(L) - Weegar(R)
Duke wouldn't have much trade value and is from here so he's fine as the #7, so Hardie is the guy I would be looking to deal.
