I would like to aquire Fernandez. What would he cost?

Manny Fernandez (who has quieted down from recent years on stating he wanted to be a number 1 or else trade him)
Well let's say Harding and Brust both leave:
Holmqvist (has signed a big contract too)
Kopriva and Brady are non existant now...Brady only gets an emergency call up.
You got three goalies now in the AHL.
Also how good would that be to one of the goalies if they get traded away for nothing because the Wild have too (well don't HAVE to but need too) and they find out it's because Fernandez is related to Lemaire and that's the only reason why he's keeping him?
I think Poti would be a great return on Fernandez, but I can't see a defensively shorthanded team like the Rangers dealing him, if they are making this move to make the playoffs this year. If it is a big no on Tjutin, then I would tell Sather to enjoy golfing without a job in April.
We're looking at 2nd tier prospects and lower picks for Fernandez.
Why are prospects traded all time for NHLers. Tjutin has zero experience. Once he plays a little his stock will go down...just the natural way of things. He could be the next coming of Bobby Orr...could be the next coming of D.J. Dozier. Worth is one thing, reality is another
