Just because the deadline is where people overpay doesn't mean legwand gets a team's best offensive prospect. Overpaying for legwand who's a soon to be UFA is likely a mid first or a 2nd and a pretty good prospect that happens to be a redundant piece for a contender.
Yeah, Brett Connelly is probably unrealistic, but Drouin is firing-Yzerman territory. Legwand probably nets us a prospect and a pick, and up the quality of each a little bit if there are numerous bidders.

I've seen Pirri mentioned both here and on the trade boards and don't really see the big deal. Probably another .5ish PPG guy at best. If he was THAT good, he wouldn't be expendable, even with the Hawks.
