Murray is the only blueliner I'd actively shop, and the only other guy I'd think about moving would be Boyle, assuming no one's going to overpay.
Braun's not an expendable piece. He becomes even more important when you look at the injuries on our blueline right now. How do you fancy icing Vlasic-Boyle, Murray-Stuart, Irwin-Tennyson to start the year?
It's not that I'm looking to trade Braun away. But we have to give to get, and Braun has more trade value than Murray.
Read fills our needs for a depth forward, and he's also young. He'd be our best forward prospect not named Wingels. Read is exactly what we need right now so I'm willing trade Braun for him straight up.
Edit: Didn't know about Briere's injury so I guess Philly doesn't do it either.
