Proposal

To Atlanta: Dick Tarnstrom, Pittsburgh's 2nd round pick.
To Pittsburgh: Patrick Stefan, Jim Slater

Thoughts?

We can afford Tarnstrom, he is signed at a very reasonable price. He is one of the only good defenseman we have. He is amazing offensively, and reliable defensively, and he is young enough we could keep him for the next 5-8 years.

He should not be traded at all, IMO, unless the offer is mind-blowing or just too good to turn down.

This deal sucks, big time.
