Trade Staal for O'Reilly.
Trade Brassard for Leddy to make up for losing Staal.
Leddy makes 2.7. He's 23. LD. Skates like the wind.
Chicago needs a 2C.
Perhaps we even add to it and steal Morin.
Brassard + Skjei for Leddy and Morin.
Leddy is what we pray Skjei will eventually develop into.
Either way, replacing Staal(3.9) with Leddy(2.7) creates the cap-space to pay Stralman, while also solving our LD hole created by trading Staal to acquire ROR.
If Chicago likes Brassard, this could be a match made in heaven IMO.
Leddy certainly isn't as good defensively as Staal, but he's better offensively and is a much faster and more mobile defenseman, while being younger (23) and cheaper (2.7 for another year before RFA).
