Based on what Lebrun said, Troy Brouwer could be a target...he fits the bill. Strong top 9 forward with a decent two-way game, a little chippy as well. Add to that Washington's place in the standings.
Ryan Clowe seems to be slowing down as well. I think people want what Clowe used to be.
Maybe Thomas Kopecky? Good size. Can be pretty chippy. A cup winner. Not saying I want him, but he fits the profile the habs are after.
Kopecky/Brouwer would both make sense given the Blackhawk ties to MB (assuming he was a fan), but then I struggle to see where they fit into our top-9...
MaxPac - Galch - Prust
Gionta - Gally - Ryder
Gally/Galch/MaxPac are definitely not moving.
Can't see either the Caps/Panthers having much interest in a lateral swap for Ryder or Bourque, and I can't see us moving Gionta for either of them (from either side).
I suppose he could find a taker somewhere else for Ryder, with pick(s)/prospect(s) coming the other way, and then moving some package of picks for Brouwer/Kopecy (or whoever else they have in mind).
would actually be quite the coup if they could move Ryder for a 1st, and then package a 2nd & 3rd for Brouwer/Kopecky... would end up being Cole for Brouwer/Kopecky & moving up from 2nd to 1st
