An O'Neill trade could still happen, but it will require receiving help either in a real grinder or a goal-scorer (on the latter maybe not a current proven guy, but someone like another Vrbata who has the skills and on the cusp). I doubt you wil see us taking on more salary, not much anyway, the defensive additions of the off-season and the Irbe contract have Karmamos about to the limit of where he will go right now.

My gut feeling is that O'Neill will stick here through the season and await the outcome of next year's maelstrom.

Could we interest the Blues in taking Hilly back???
