Best we could hope for is a 2nd tier prospect or mid round pick, but that suits me fine. Can we throw Poti in and get an extra set of Ginsu knives? :p
I'm sure the team trading for Poti would hold out for the George Foreman grill!
Seriously, here's my trade of the day. Mess and Simon to Colorado for ??? (pick(s) and or minor prospect/Worrell). Reasons, Mess goes to a contender. Colorado has some insurance in case Forsberg/Nikolishin are out longer than expected. Mess/Simon have shown a lot of chemistry together, so Colorado besides experience and toughness, they get some scoring. Throw Konowalchuk on that line and I would say you would have a solid 3rd line in the playoffs. Colorado would look like this up front assuming Forsberg is healthy:
Tanguay Forsberg Hejduk
Kariya Sakic Selanne
Simon Mess Konowalchuk
Moore Hendrickson ???
As for the Rangers, they get pick(s) and maybe a prospect which is better than nothing.
