See my revision to the proposed. I replaced Versteeg with Upshall so that satisfies the "win now" philosophy though with a lower value but works better for the Panthers. Kept the 1st in the deal but replaced Petrovic since we need d-men sooner than Vancouver does and would give you the ability to draft someone like Ristolainen this yr (big RHD). With Matthias currently injured (I believe a concussion), had to replace him but did so with Shore who has more value than Matthias probably.

I changed it anyway to a different deal. Keep in mind, that FL has no need for a goaltender so unless its a gift, whats their motivation to make a deal? So like you said, nothing wrong with maintaining the status quo all the way around.
