Who will be our number 6?!

My thoughts on some realistic and affordable options. These trades would have us sending 2nd or 3rd round picks and/or prospects.

1. Hainsey: I'm not sure if we can afford him, (salary cap) but if we can, he is a smooth skater and can move the puck very well.

2. John Erskine: If the caps keep falling maybe they will be willing to part with him (not sure how he is playing this year but in years past he has been a great physcial presence and makes a solid first pass).

3. Chis Butler: Haven't watched him play this year, but with Buffalo he was a pretty reliabile young d-man.

4. Ryan Whitney: Looks like he wants out of Edmonton. Not sure if we would be able to fit him under the cap, but I think playing for a contender could rejuvenate his play. He has been awful this year; I can see the value he would bring to a 3rd pairing but he may end up in the torts dog-house too.

Would you pay for these guys and what would be your price? Who else is available?

For the record, I hope J.T. Miller sticks, and if he does I think we should absolutely keep Boyle because forward depth will always be extremely important, and Boyle has been consitent in the past and was very reliable in the playoffs.
I watched Hainsey in Winnipeg and he plays RD and could help on the PP.........I would take him for a pick and Eminger
