Like I mentioned in the other thread, what about Drew Stafford? Not as young with potential like Johansson, but more proven and is a guy who is paid to score goals. He's just not getting it done in Buffalo anymore. I could see a change in scenery doing him good.
Stafford for Klesla + Gordon? Buffalo could add. Phoenix sends Gordon our way to balance out the cap hits. Buffalo could always add a pick/prospect to even it out if the value's not quite there and Phoenix wouldn't have to take on additional cap space. I'd love to get a defenseman that can actually play solid defense besides Ehrhoff and Regehr and Gordon is a good faceoff-man and a very good PK'er.
