I also agree that Zucker and Kap are not the type of players the Hawks are looking for, and I think the Pens might be better served by shopping them to a team that would be looking at NHL-ready mid-6 payers. I would be interested in the pick and Poulin as the Hawks forward depth is... not so good. I'd say switch out Zucker with another mid-pick or a complementary style-forward prospect (Like Zahorna, but probably not him, because I think he's probably ready to make the jump, but someone like him) and I would do that deal. I'd just drop Kap from the trade all together, no need to add in a replacement value for him, as I think that deal would be fine for the value of Murph.</div></div>
Moving Zucker is the problem. I think it's possible to get him completely off the books, but it's going to take a certain situation and this is one that works which is why I made the deal a little better for CHI.
