Zbynek Michalek

Will preface this by saying that Z is probably the least likely of our veteran stay-at-home defensemen (Morris, Klesla) to move. However, I am interested in what other teams would offer to obtain him. A legit top-pairing shutdown guy, Michalek is one of the more underrated blueliners in the league. And before any of you point out that he was traded back to Phoenix for more or less a bag of pucks, keep in mind that a) Pittsburgh wanted to free up cap space to jump into the Parise/Suter sweepstakes and b) Shero had his hands tied by Z's NTC, and Phoenix was apparently the only team he'd waive it for.

Anyways, the preferred asking price is a Top 6 forward, one who at least doesn't make any more than Michalek's $4M. Calgary HFers have set the bar already with Tanguay.

he also waived it to go to Ottawa but Pitts would not take money back for said reasons.

Ducks really don't have a top six forward to give, but I think I'd gladly trade the Isles' second for him on draft day.

I might offer Hiller for him, not sure I'd want to play against him that often though.

Which part is untrue? That he's not a shutdown guy who can log huge minutes, or that he's not a top 2 defender? He certainly has played against opponent's top lines in a shutdown role in both Phoenix and Pittsburgh.

He can't handle physical play. Or at least he couldn't with the Pens.

Z's not a thumper, but I wouldn't say he's soft either. Doesn't really impede his defensive ability.
