In theory, Letestu is available. In practice, we'd like to keep that depth handy.

And Brassard is as "tradable" as Gagner right now: we wouldn't mind trading him, but we're looking for an upgrade at that position, which renders it impractical to do so.

He's playing wing, not center here. He does not presently qualify as "available". And Dubnyk is... not of interest, to put it mildly. What we'd look for there is a skilled winger...

...and as G-d is my witness I swear if anyone here dares try to run with that and come up with a two-for-one with us losing two guys and getting Hemsky I will DEVOUR YOUR SOUL.

Umby's going through hard times, so expect a few Jackets fans to say "yes, please, take him". Don't listen to them. They're crazy.

That said, he's significantly better on the wing than at center.

The simple truth of the matter is that we're presently making use of all the forward depth we have and are not in a position to spare any. Ask us again when we have Eberle/Hall type guys on the roster (or when Attaboy and Johan get there ).
