In other words, you don't trade for those guys to replace Pronger. You trade for them to replace Carle.
I don't think this team would have been anything but marginally better with Carle. I assumed these suggestions are to solve blue line issues beyond Timonen's retirement. Ryan Whitney could replace Carle if that is all anyone wants. (and no I do not like Whitney).
