NJD are arguably in win-now mode - especially after the SCF last year. I know they lost Parise but they look like they haven't really missed a beat. Brodeur has maybe 1-2 years left in him - if I were them I'd take all the top-6 forwards and top-4 defensemen I can get. If Whitney can continue his play, I think they might bite, especially if we add a B-level prospect (Marincin, Lander, etc).

Of course they'd want to send salary back this way (Zubrus?)

And Larsson is what he is - currently a bottom-pairing defenseman working his way up the lineup. He's got #1 potential, but it's similar to someone like Klefbom (#2 potential) - I'd still move him in a heartbeat if I could upgrade my current roster to the degree of a top-6 FWD + top-4 D when in a win-now mode.
