The types of guys that are available right now are probably Matt D'Agostini types that are probably upgrades but not significant upgrades. Seto may be available but he'll probably be cheaper if you wait for the Wild to fall out of it. He'd probably cost a really good prospect at the moment but Russo speculated they may even trade him for just picks down the road.
I thought the same thing last year.
And, yes, it takes two to make a deal. It also takes a GM who isn't married to 2M third liners and defensive prospects who might do something in three or four years too.
