I won't be surprised if Rutherford goes after Liles given his love affair with offensive defensemen, but I won't be happy as that really isn't what Carolina needs given they have Pitkanen, McBain, Faulk, Corvo, Sanguinetti (and Murphy likely next year). What they lack and need a more physical, defensive defenseman.

The Canes also can't afford to take on too much salary/cap hit if they want to re-sign Semin because guys like Skinner, J. Staal, and Harrison all have increases in salary / cap. (they only have about $11M in space next year with quite a few players to sign).

I'll be royally pissed if Rutherford gives up much in the way of picks/prospects for someone like Liles, Komisarek, etc.. Guys like Gunnarson, Kostka, Holzer make more sense for Carolina, but I'd be surprised if Nonis moved any of them.
