I knew the answer before I typed it, but I thought I'd ask. He's really the only guy that I'd want from Edmonton at the moment (at the cost of Zidlicky). In a few years, if/when Weber has assumed a top line role, a player like Matt Greene intrigues me. He has the potential to be a really strong 2nd pairing defenseman, but I think he's a few years off from that spot. And though the early results are enticing, I want to see how he plays a full 82 games in the "new" NHL which isn't really built for him as well as the old. He's not worth Zidlicky to the Preds at this stage because he wouldn’t really bring immediately physical help into the top four.

Let's do a Hamhuis for Hemsky trade and call it even, no?
