I'm not Yzerman, so I obviously don't know, but we can guess that the Flyers, Lightning, and Avalanche (currently the 2-4 seeded teams) would be more interested in serious upgrades to their D at this point than taking yet another forward piece. So the potential for a deal is there. What kind of deal do people want to see?
Obviously, at least one of our defensemen would have to be involved. I just wouldn't trade Murray. I wouldn't make the trade, because I wouldn't want to trade what other teams would want. I would try to get what we need through the draft picks we have this year. I would maybe make a trade next year if we still don't have what we need.
