Who is scratched WHEN Preds make a trade?


So here's the question that I pose to you all. When (and I'm saying it's a matter of time, because everything seems to be leaning in the direction of a deal will be made) we make a deal for a "Top 6 Forward", who on our team will be scratched or potentially sent down to the minors?

I think this is a tough call and really one that I don't feel we necessarily need to make (I'm not sold that this team needs a Top 6 Forward but rather some beef in the defense) aside from to appease Suter. Nashville is 11th in offense, 2nd in pp and 9th in defense as of February 1st and as such, I feel pretty good about our team. Nevertheless, a trade seems to be imminent as of now to make that Stanley Cup push and to keep our free agents.

My opinion is that it will be Spaling, Yip, Bourque, Smith, or Halischuk, barring a player is packaged in the trade to another team clearing a spot for the new player. My gut is Bourque (to prevent his rookie status from being waved entirely and keeping an extra year on his contract) but what do I know. That's why I pose the question to you all. If we make a trade, who's scratched?

P.S. Sorry I accidentally deleted this post and had to create it again. The previous votes were for 4 Bourque - 1 Halischuk
