The fact of the matter is we have a lot of assets and I do think we have enough to make a package for a real good d-man and someone to replace Gagner. Would be two seperate deals, but there is no reason something couldn't be worked out.
people have mentioned hemsky's salary as a negative a few times... this is easily fixed by having us absorb some of his salary in the trade... we aren't up against the cap next season, so we could easily keep 1.5 or so if need be.... hemsky at 3.5 is a player a lot of teams would be interested in
