I'd like to propose something which I think would take us sideways at the moment but I believe would help us a great deal over time.

I'd like to say I prefer a tough, hard to play against defence as opposed to our current defence which has the ability to put up lots of points but is not very tough to play against.

Step 1: Trade Brian Little to Phoenix for Rostislav Klesla and Branden Gormley.

I think we would probably have to add a bit to this but I don't think it would be anything huge.

Step 2: Trade Tobias Enstrom to Colorado for Ryan O'Rielly and Duncan Siemens.

They would probably also have to add a high pick.

What this does is it upgrades our top six somewhat as our current roster would change from Brian Little to Ryan O'Rielly. It would downgrade our offensive production from our defence but it would make it alot bigger and tougher.

The kicker is we would pick up two very high end defensive prospects. In a few years we could have a top four of:

Gormley - Bogo
Siemens - Trouba

I understand there are problems with this. Klesla does get injured and Gormley isn't producing as expected this year in the A.

I do know that Phoenix is looking for young offensive help and they have lots of defensive assets. I also know Colorado's defense is pretty suspect. In principle they should both have interest in these trades.
