Dude!! (classic movie!!..."Lebowski borthers" ...title?!)

O'Byrne, Halak, Kostitsyn, and Ryder for... JOKINEN???
A little too much.

Halak: might one day be a great NHL goalie (already dominating in AHL at 21)
Kosts: lots of offensive potential (starting to bloom at 21...)
Ryder: one-dimensional 30 goal scorer, but's 30 goals! great chemistry with Koivu/Higgins, etc...
O'Byrne: only 20 or 21? could end up being a bigger/taller RIVET. Or something close (hopefully!) to Komisarek (or poor man's version of it!).

I'd give Ryder, O'Byrne, Niinimaa (would they want him?), and a
1st rounder
