One of Kreider / Miller or at the very least a 2014 1st + someone like Fasth / Lindberg. Too steep for a great complimentary player for my taste but they got a 1st for freakin' Gaustad last year who was a UFA to be too and there are just as few if not less sellers this year.
I agree those prices are too high. Maybe an alternate package of secondary assets? Something like Fogarty McColgan and a pick? Maybe Fogarty McColgan and two 3s for Ott and two 4s?
