I agree, but the problem with moving Smid is the same with us moving a Klein or Josi. It opens up a bigger hole than the problem you're trying to solve.

That said, I could definately see them dangle Gagner to try to fill that bottom 6 defensive forward need.

I think I would do it if I was Poile. Gagner would be the #1 center here, and while not the big time PPG forward, is another guy that can score - and when the guy gets hot, there's no one who can put up points like him around the NHL.

But what $$$'s does he want. And we'd almost definately have to move Gaustad's contract to fit Gagner in, so if Edmonton doesn't want that, then we don't have a whole lot we can move and still sign the guy to a reasonable contract. Maybe we have to sweeten it with Craig Smith.

Forsberg - Fisher - HQ
Beck - Leggy - Bourque
Nystrom - Cullen - Hendricks.

Looks good to me.
