This kinda just hit me tonight when I was watching sportscenter and I just wanted to get your thoughts on it.
Riberio and Souray
Avery and Visnovsky
I know what you're thinking. It's Avery! He's a goon!
Yes but he claims to have changed and he's not all that bad offensively good for 40 or 50 points. Visnovsky had 67 points last year and was like 3rd in defensman scoring. Plus he's not all that bad defensively either.
Don't kill me if you don't like it, It was just a thought.
Also La wouldn't give Vishnovosky for Souray + Ribeiro,
Me too...and even if they still have him, I wouldn't include him in the deal.
But if Vishnovski is available because of the Blake signing, well I would push real hard to get him. Souray and Ribeiro is a good start, but if they want more, like a high pick or a good prospect, I would pull the trigger. We really need one more top 3 defenceman who can carry the puck!
And by trading a foward without receiving one, we would open a spot for a young player!

LA did not release Avery. Their former coach and GM stopped playing him for the remainder of the season, and cut ties with him. However, they fired their GM and coach, and the new ones tendered Avery a qualifying offer.
Also, Visnovsky is one of the top offensive d-men in the league. He is worth far more than Ribeiro + Souray.
