I was thinking something like Zibanejad, Lazar and dman prospect or Smith. That would be about equal to what Ryan got. Ottawa would be set and so would EDM. Then EDM can also trade Gagner which I am sure would bring in a good young dman. Maybe a deal with PHX as they are pretty loaded with dmen. Then move N.Schultz for a 2nd.
I know Ottawa gets the better player but it gives us some better size in our top 9 and still plenty of scoring.
Hall; RNH; Hemsky
Perron; Zibanejad; Eberle
Joensuu; Gordon; Smith
Gradzek; Acton; Brown
I would be happy with a front 12 of that. Very balance with size and skill in the top 9.
This is why I was talking about moving Yak; do I think he is a great player yes, but would it make our team better now and in the future yes. Give Lazar 2 more years to develop then move him into the 3rd line centreman position.
Having RNH; Zibenajak; and Lazar for the next 10 years for centreman is a very good thing for this team.
