There's nothing coming back that will significantly help this team next year, not for these guys.

Would Streit to the Pens for Olli Maata or Scott Harrington be a deal worth making? What about Streit to Philly for Couturier? or their counter, Wayne Simmonds?

Outside the conference: Streit to DET for Gustav Nyquist or Brendan Smith?

I don't think trades are the way to go.

UFAs is probably a better idea but that will mean a drastic overpayment that is often a bad move, both financially AND on-ice.
The first portion that I bolded was pretty reasonable for a trade deadline proposal. I like Olli Maata...... But then you started getting a bit crazy.. Couturier for Streit???? Are you kidding me?? Couturier is a 6'4 20 year old stud center. He is a huge part of Philly's future. Trading him for a 36 year old declining by the minute defenseman, and I use the word 'defense' very loosely with Streit.. Craziness!!
