Bennett - Crosby - Oshie
Kunitz - Berglund - Neal
Schwartz - Sutter - Dupuis

as a top 9...you can argue it balances out the forwards.

The deal only makes sense if what Orpik/Martin can be swapped for can make Pittsburgh a deeper team.

The original proposal doesn't do that.
And the Blues don't touch that deal. It destroys our offensive depth, and makes our defense much worse.
