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:

Hall-Couturier-Eberle
Bennett-Berglund-Simmonds
Perron-Gordon- Jaskin
Gazdic-Arcobello-Pitlick
Joensuu

Hjalmarsson-Shattenkirk
Ference-Schultz
Marincin-Greene
Belov

Hillier
Bachman

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.
