Trade Tootoo, one of the d-men and at least one of the picks from the Vokoun deal and get the player we need now to reach the league minimum salary and fill out the 3rd line.
I agree that Sully is a better player at this point in their careers; however, Enoch is right. With the first coming our way, I would lean towards making this deal. I doubt the Habs make this trade though. We don't even know how effective Sully will be when he does get back onto the ice. A first in this draft is great value as well, or we could turn around and use it as an asset for trade at the deadline to get a good NHL player like we did last year with Forsberg.
