Similar to Gomez for McDonagh earlier.
Gomez for McD was one of the biggest rip-offs ever, and the GM who made that trade lost his job because of it. You can't pray for one of those deals.

And honestly, no. I don't think Eberle or Gagner get any of the players you listed, nor do I think you take a gamble on someone who is developing, because if he doesn't live up to his potential, we traded one of our few good pieces for feces. Unless you think Tambellini has the skill to trade Horcoff for a future top pair d-man, I think you are hoping for the impossible.
