Maybe, maybe not. They'd have Bäckström and MacKinnon/Barkov (only way they'd move him) and know that Kuznetsov wouldn't be over until 2014/15. They might want to get a winger in and try to compete next season.

I didn't say he'd be cheap, I said we'd have a chance to buy low on his potential because we'd have to wait until his KHL season ended.

I'm more in favor of getting a high end #2C in, but others think we need a high end #1C. The only way we can get the latter is by giving up a hell of a lot, or buy taking a calculated risk.
