Team Explanation
Risto's gotta go, regardless of whether you want to move him or not. Might as well move him and see if we can clear some dead weight in the process.

The Winnipeg trade might be a little imbalanced, but the general idea is there. They need lower-6 forwards and at cheap, plus a good 2RHD. We get a top-6 forward and taking Perreault is mainly a wash since he needs to move to make the cap work. The pick is my attempt at balance.

Scandella or Bogosian need to move. I figure with Bogo hurt, Scandella has a better chance, although at basically nothing. I don't think we can find buyers for both.

I'd be happy to flip Perreault to another team if someone would take just him for a pick or something. It kills me to keep ERod on the fourth line, plus it would be an excellent spot to bring Smith up at.

    I didn't realize Tage Thompson was spelled C-O-N-O-R S-H-E-A-R-Y. Weird.

    I doubt it would be enough, but it would be a real good start.
