Don't trade the 1st. Period.

If we can acquire one of them for Stastny or O'Reilly, that's when you start to consider it. Ultimately I would decline and retain our center depth.

Wait for one to hit Free Agency, wait for the right opportunity to take a younger guy (or an older one) on the way out due to depth (Ehrhoff for instance when the Nucks grabbed him). Develop your prospects and move them for deals right before we're contenders.

We don't need an EJ partner to be in the playoffs, we need a coach that can use our current lot more effectively (including Barrie). By the time we've gotten a year or two under our belts in the playoffs it'll be time to move a prospect or two and we might have the assets to acquire the defender we need... if Siemens or someone didn't fill that void already.
