What team are willing to trade a top pairing defender for Ryan Wilson and picks/prospects?

Maybe Wilson, Elliot and next year's first rounder for Coburn? And while Coburn is an upgrade over everything but EJ I wouldn't consider him good enough to anchor a pairing.

Wilson, Elliot, two firsts for Yandle?

I think Roy and Sakic will want to keep their first round picks so there won't be any trades happening. The team doesn't need another middle pairing guy. It's a legit #1/#2 that's needed and the Avs just don't have the pieces to trade for one. Even when ROR can be traded we're looking at ROR + another roster player + high picks/prospects for a legit top pairing guy.
