The injury to Dupuis is probably going to require the trade of a D prospect for a winger. There certainly isn't anybody in the organization capable to playing the role. No, I do not count Beau Brittle because he can't
be counted on. When you look at the roster and the current option is Vitale or Adams, or you can recall Gibbons or Z, you know something has to be done and quick. They are going to have to pony up and trade a guy like Despres or Harrington. Maybe even Pouliot. Despres seems the most likely because they are flush with offensive type guys.
I'm not really sure who's out there, but I would look at a team like Edmonton that needs D and has lots of good young wingers. I don't want a rental, either. I want a Neal-like guy who's going to be around awhile. Too bad Nieuwendyk isn't still in Dallas. We could probably trade Engelland for Benn
So let's hear your reasonable trade ideas. I'll start with Despres plus a pick for Eberle.
