Yes to Brewer. We need more D and he fits that perfectly. We will be shedding Blake, Norstrom and probably Miller and Tverdovsky soon and we currently have guys like Weaver we could afford to send back to the AHL to make room for Brewer if need be. By the time things all shake out, hopefully he'll be ready as a decent to good vet defenseman that we will sorely lack after 2007-08.
But, I can only see about two situations where we get him:
1) Sign him for free as a UFA for more than two years.
2) Salary swap someone like Tverdovsky for Brewer.
No matter the situation, I won't let go any pick higher than a 3rd or any viable prospect for him because it will just be spinning wheels again. With the first situation being perfectly viable, there's really no need to give up talent for him now. Let some desperate playoff team do that.
