And you'd have to agree Skinner's upside is greater than Gags.... you wouldn't do the trade? Ruutu would certainly shore up #3C with some much needed grit. You can draft a solid C and given Skinner the same shot you'd otherwise have given Gags on the 2nd line.
Losing Petry would be a serious detriment to the defense.

And pair that with the fact that Carolina values Skinner close to where they value the Staal brothers. I don't think that deal gets done.
