50 points and great two way play?

SA16 has a point. Instead of looking at obtainable options that aren't bad players to begin with, lets just talk about how we can trade Del Zotto for Kane and Yakupov. Cause that'll ever happen.
If (RangerHank or w/e his name is) you don't like my suggestion how about coming up with a legitimate suggestion instead? Someone that we can get without getting rid of major pieces? Sure you can get Kane if you'd like to give up DZ, top prospects, first round picks etc...or you can get someone more on Erat's level (not necessarily him) for picks or lesser prospects. The point is he, or a player like him, is an upgrade on our 3rd line wing spot which is what we need. Replace a ~30 point player with a ~50 point player (maybe a little less if he's getting less minutes than usual and less PP time of course) and you have an improved roster. You also have additional depth in case of injury. We basically have 5 very solid wingers now in Kreider/Zucc/Callahan/Nash/Hagelin. We need one more. Richards can be one but then we are weak at C and would need to get a top 3 center to take his spot.
