That was early last offseason when our only other top 6 forwards were E. Staal, and a declining Ruutu and Jokinen.

Since adding Semin, J. Staal, and the emergence of Jiri Tlusty things have changed. Skinner is still a great player but his concussions and his lack of chemistry with our other top 6 linemates are a cause for concern in the mind of most Canes fans. We would rather move his contract if it would return a solid top 4 (hopefully top pairing) defenseman because that would fix our greatest deficiency while also giving us a little more cap room in the future (also a potential problem). In reality, I don't see him being moved for various reasons, but I do think it would benefit our team .
