Eriksson is awesome, and I could definitely see why you wouldn`t want to trade him, but purely positionally, having signed Jagr and Whitney in the off season, wing is an area of strength, and Dallas` defense could certainly use an infusion of talent. It may not be perfect, but for a 5-way trade, I think I met everyone`s needs.

San Jose upgrades their top-6(and I`m assuming that as a legitimate cup contender they can re-sign him).
Anaheim gets their much needed 2C(although it kind of hinges on Perry wanting to leave to a contender, slightly lowering his value to the Ducks)
Phoenix deals from a position of strength on both their roster and prospect pool to acquire a dangerous scoring threat whose defensive game would work well with Tippet, I think.
Dallas I mentioned above.
Los Angeles helps clear their backlog of centres(Kopitar-Richards-Carter-Toffoli-Loktionov with top-6 potential). I think Richards and Eriksson are similar calibre players, and the difference in value positionally is reversed in LA dur to their need for Wingers over centres.
