No they won't. No team is going to give up a top prospect in that situation. None.

They also have 2.3 million in space on a 22 man roster with 3.5 million in a bonus cushion they can use. So that's 5.8 million to spend, and if they do sign Smith, Nyqvist, Andersson and Brunner at least 3 players will be be removed from the roster so that will free up an additional 1.7 million, 2.3 if they go with a 22 man roster.

How much salary do you think they need to shed to fit those 4 players? I think 7.5-8 million could be enough, if not the amount of salary they will need to shed is minimal.

Not nearly dire enough to trade one of their top prospects for cap relief.
