Who would be the best fit for Souray and who could we get in return? Assuming a Dman would be coming back.
1 - Souray has a NTC contract this year and finally got to live with his family. The only place he'd accept a trade to is LA. Maybe. You really want to trade him to LA right now?

2 - the team is old, and will all need rest. The more legitimate D there are on the roster, the more the chance we will have 6 legitimate D on the roster come the playoffs.

3 - the purpose of hockey is to win the Stanley Cup, not to play NHL13 "be a GM". Trading your shutdown pairing defenseman while at #2 in the league is the latter.
