It would be interesting to see who Jeff O'Neill could fetch from Colorado. JR and PL have a nice little relationship working apparently, so it's not out of the question that there might be some smoke there as well. Derek Morris would be about the type of player that Carolina would be looking for in an O'Neill deal and that would make sense from a Carolina perspective, but probably not from a Colorado one. We could send back Sean Hill with O'Neill in exchange for a 3rd Round Pick in order to make sure there is a decent NHL player to man the blueline for Colorado.

However, I really doubt this happens. Carolina would see this as the ideal deal, but Colorado has a glut of forwards and one disappointing Teemu Selanne probably wouldn't be enough for them to ante up Derek Morris, a stud on the blueline, for a supplimental forward that would probably play on the 2nd or 3rd line. Daze and O'Neill both. Forsberg should be back, Blake, Kariya. They just have too much talent to make a deal like this simply because one of their star forwards isn't putting up the numbers that were expected of him.
