Edit: While I don't have Eriksson as untouchable, it'd have to be a pretty nice deal in order to move him.
I wouldn't be at all suprised to see Grabovski find a home in Dallas. As far as I remember, Niewendyk was a big fan of his, and you'd have to believe that Toronto would prefer to keep Tyler Bozak around.

Maybe it's as simple as Eric Nystrom and a pick.

That said, I'd love the likes of a Pavelski or Gagner as well if the price were close and I'd definitely go after Weiss as well, regardless of whether I get Bozak.
Realistically... if you're Tyler Bozak, are you REALLY going to leave a team where you're the #1 centre, where the franchise winger loves / insists on playing with you, and that team has a top 5 offence?
