Goc = 12 points in 28 games on a really bad and injury-riddled team.
Schroeder = 9 points in 28 games playing with some of the best current players on the team (I know you could say he makes them better, but Raymond and Hansen have looked this good in the past).
Goc also brings more size and experience and would come relatively cheap. He's just an example though, we might be able to get someone even better if we give up more. The depth is the most important part though, and the cost-benefit from the trade is easily worth it IMO. Address the top 6 playmaker through free agency or the Luongo trade.
I have no problem with getting Goc but that can't be it. Guys like Tanguay, CAmmy, Jagr, Doan are the ones that will put us over the top. I have no idea what to give up but it needs to happen or we aren't winning, simple as that.
