Trading a young Simmonds who we will have for years to come for an injury prone UFA-to-be makes absolutely no sense. Would be pretty terrible asset management on our part.
For Gange think Quick AND Simmonds if you want to play in the realm of reality..
picks and prospects is about all they can take if they want to sign someone else. they have leino and giroux to take over - Gagne isn't worth as much to them right now as the cap space is.
moller/teubert/1st for Gagne/JVR would do it. teubert ready to take over for pronger in two years, moller can play now if they need him and he's cheap, plus a pick for the future.
JVR would be tough for them to give up and may not be the 2nd piece - but that would be awesome.
