This team has plenty of bad hockey players, they don't need more.

If we were talking about guys with size and some snarl who can play a competent two way game, that's a different story. Replacing top sixers with third and fourth liners doesn't end well (or do you not remember JFJ on the first line?)
I'd be willing to take that chance, I think a deal like Petry+2014 1st-Lander or a lower level prospect for Myers-Grigorenko-NYI 1st would work well for both teams.
