If you deal that for a #3 centerman who will effectively preclude Nash and Rask from wearing the Hurricanes jersey, you're losing 3 prospects, not just 1. Instead, why not just get a stop-gap? I don't have a guy in mind, just the idea.
Nash, no I don't think he can. I think he can be an extremely good #4 centerman. Rask on the other hand just might be able to be a #3 but that's at least 2 seasons off. Maybe I'm just getting ahead of myself here, I'd just like the team to make a move to make us a legit threat while we still have the resources in place to make a run with this core. Not sure how long Semin will be around since he could leave as a UFA after this season, but he just seems to be the element this team was missing the past few years.

I know Cardiac said Moore is probably taking the season off unfortunately, I'm just not seeing that much else out there on the UFA market that could help right now.
