In the realm of the ridiculous - do you think Larsson+Tallinder would bring us back one of their top kids?
They are set in the fact that right now, they are icing:

Whitney-J. Schultz
Smid-Petry
N. Schultz-Fistric
Sutton/Peckham

Like it or not, there is no room. They have their 7th D, they want the rookies to play so they aren't going to be sat. Tallinder's not that much of an upgrade of those guys for them to be interested in trading anything of serious value. He's definitely an upgrade over some, but it's just like the Flames trying to give us Bouwmeester. We don't need him and he's not that much better than our D to warrant us trading for him and giving up valuable assets that can go towards addressing our actual needs.
