Trade MacArthur for a pick, and Frattin + Scrivens for Bernier, roll two young goalies with good potential and keep them both happy with equal opportunity.
At this point, no.

Frattin isn't going anywhere. He's our 2nd best RW behind Kessel at this point, and trading him would be foolish. Bernier is going UFA at the end of the season anyway, so it's not like we won't have an opportunity to offer him a contract.

I'm all for trading Macarthur, and possibly packaging him with one of our depth D for either a better pick or prospect, or either speed or size in the top-9 (Clowe/Raymond).

Perry is a pipe dream - he's not hitting the market because Anaheim is going to lock him up.

It would have been nice to pull the trigger on Nash, but we'd all be freaking out if he had 9 pts in 11 games while Kadri and Gardiner thrived playing top-6 minutes in CLB. Not to mention we'd have no 1st this year. So yah, it would be nice to have seen BB jump on a move for Nash or Kovy, but I'm still not convinced those moves were the right thing to do at the moment.

Besides, with Frattin emerging as a legit scoring threat with Kadri it forces more teams to respect that line, opening more ice and more opportunity for Kessel.
