I didn't think it would be very long before a NJ fan came out with that.

The trade that would work here would be:
To San Jose - One of Rundblad/Cowen
To Ottawa - Setoguchi + picks.
Setoguchi is a young winger, San Jose needs young defensemen, and you guys have a recent history of trading.
Um, no. Don't get me wrong, I actually like Seto, but what has he done to make him worth the best prospect not in the NHL (Rundblad) or Cowen, the only stud defensive Dman prospect we have (and likely Karlsson's long-term partner).

If teh OTT 2nd was swapped out for the BOS or even the CHI 2nd, I'd be tempted to do that.
I would rather try to acquire Wolski on the cheap or another reclamation project or just a UFA that will look good with Spezza. Versteeg has never impressed me and has seems to be traded wherever he goes.
I would consider Setoguchi for Cowen type proposal. However, I doubt San Jose does this, Seto is one of their more affordable, controllable top six forwards who seems to be doing well with Thornton, Marleau on the top line these playoffs. Ottawa GM is generally in love with his prospects so I don't see that happening either.
any proposal (nash, draft picks, anything, seriously)
UFA's, RFA's, etc
I was like I swear we just did this thread last week and lo and behold, it was you that started it!
I believe an agreement was (with a couple other posters) reached on:
Huselius + Upshall's rights + 3rd rounder
Kuba + Foligno

Tempting kinda but I'd just be so damn pissed if he didn't put up 60ish points... and only slightly happy about doing that trade if he did. My happiness is not enough boom and too much bust with this one
Add a conditional second next year depending on perfomance?
