I'll bring up a deal I've thrown around a few times with RNH going to St. Louis for Berglund + Shattenkirk+Jaskin. Then trade Gagner+Klefbom to Chicago for Hjalmarsson. Then Yakupov+Petry to Philly for Couturier+Simmonds. Sign M. Greene and Hillier. Gives us a lineup like this:
Once Bennett gets older and more mature he takes over the top line center role and bumps everyone down a spot.
I think it would suck to watch RNH go win a Cup (or two) in St. Louis and become a 85+ point no.1 C there. Couturier + Berglund is overkill.
