Best option for restocking comes with the Wings if they'd be interested. Take your pick of Tatar/Ferraro/Nyquvist/Jurco/Frk. I'd even be willing to take back Bertuzzi or Samuelson.
Once again, I'm not supporting the idea of trading Gabby just to trade him, but if they can restock the forwards in the system (once Fasth/Lindberg/St. Croix turn pro the only one left with any real offensive potential is Nieves and he's 2-3 years away) then it might be worth exploring.
I'm willing to take back Dubi too if CLB would do Boyle/Asham one of the 3rds for Dubi. They'd save 1.5 million in cap and for us Dubi+Miller+Pyatt>Boyle+Miller+Pyatt.
Feel free to yell at me
Dude...if Gaborik gets us Niklas Backstrom, I pack Gabby's bags, buy the airplane tickets, drive Gabs to the airport, and carry his Christmas trees to his home in Washington every single year.
