Here's an idea... Ryan O'Reilly?
Namestnikov is not a bottom 6 guy, I see his long-term future as a winger or second line center once Vinny gets past 35. Namestnikov has a great skill set, but lacks the face-off ability, defensive responsibility and grit to be an effective third line player.

O'Reilly would be a fantastic acquisition, he's got great speed, the puck hound skills of Pyatt, is mature beyond his years, strong on faceoffs (52.8% success rate last year on 1443 draws taken) and is very astute defensively. Not sure if COL would trade away a key player for a player like Purcell though, we'd likely have to add quite a bit more.
