We MIGHT, be able to get somebody like Ryder, Cammalleri, Horton, Naslund or Langkow with that package(I doubt it but GM do dumb things all the time); but I'd settle for somebody like Brendan Morrison, Matt Lombardi, Ales Kotalik, Cory Stillman or Stephan Weiss.
Who do you see as a "true" trading partner looking for a Backman type defenseman and a pick? I see Pittsburgh looking to upgrade their defensive situation. Perhaps a package of 3 players containing (pick three) Christiansen, Ouellet, Talbot, Stone and Filewich. All have the potential to fill a 2nd line or a 3rd scoring line. Another direction may be perhaps Backman and a 1st round pick for Staal?
I wouldn't settle for what you would. Cory Stillman? We're trying to build a winner. We are not there yet or even close (to build a long term contender). We want someone that will be on the team two to five years from now. I wouldn't trade future unless I received someone with one in return.
