Let's assume where there is smoke, there's fire with potential Buff and Hainsey trade rumors.

Once Toby is back, would you like the following deals?

1. Buff to Philly for:
Voracek+Gervais+2013 1st rd pick

2. Hainsey to Blues for:
2013 1st rd pick (blues)

3. Antropov to ?? for pick(s).

4. Wellwood to ?? for pick(s).

That would leave:


and... maybe Trouba


And... multiple 1st rd picks in 2013 (three), and more later rd picks in 2013 or 2014. If the Jets do sign Trouba, to join the team this spring, then I think I might be okay with these types of moves, though our D is pretty thin. Though, Buff has been in and out of the line-up. No guarantees he stays healthy during a playoff push, either.


Edit: plus the 3 potential 1st rd picks this year could ALL be potential lottery picks. Potentially, one could be 1st overall, but there's a chance all three are in top 14. So odds of grabbing a potential future top pairing dman (either Jones, Pullock, Nurse, Zadorov, or RR) AND a top 6 forward (likely either Monahan, Lindholm, Shinkaruk or Nichushkin) would be pretty good. Course, there's also the chance those 3 picks are #16+ as well. Though, having 3 gives some flexibility to move up on draft day.
