carolina's situation makes it difficult to say any player is truly untouchable - but i think cole is about as safe as he could be. he pockets very little money, is young, and a valueable part of their team. he is exactly the kind of player they looking for in return in a trade. that would also be the reason i would point to for arguement on acquiring koivu. kouivu is expensive, older, and plays a position that, for now, they really dont need more people at. that may change if they move brindamour, and francis retires. then they would have only staal, vasicek, adams, zigomanis. either way they are rebuilding and wouldnt trade a younger player for an older one...especially an expensive one.
i didnt originally see you had carolina giving up more than just cole. while koivu may be a higher producing forward than cole-i wouldnt do that trade straight up, let alone throw in a prospect/pick.
