For us, he would be a great fit in our top 6.

What would you guys be willing to pay if he is available?
Pretty sure Loui is most comfortable on the LW.

He would be a nice fit for any teams Top 6, but with JVR and Lupul manning our Top 6 LW's, he wouldn't be a must.

Although switching Lupul to RW could present itself as an interesting option.

The tough part is evaluation Eriksson's value. He'd absolutely cost a significant package. I am sure Dallas would want someone young enough, but controllable contract wise. Possibly something around a young NHL ready player, our 1st round pick and a blue chipper like Colborne/Biggs/Finn.

That is quite a significant package for that LW spot that isn't a desperate need for this franchise like our Top 4 Right Handed Defender or a #1 type of Center are, and goaltending could continue to be a question mark.
