Thursday's Dump & Chase:Should The Preds Make A Trade (Or Two Or Three)?

Bruce Bennett

First of all, set this season aside. It's likely lost no matter who could be (realistically) brought in, so mortgaging the future for a run this year is out. No rentals, please. We know what we need (OFFENSE), but what would we have to give up to get it? Probably something we don't want to, but that's how it goes. For me, the only guys I wouldn't trade are Weber, Rinne, Hornqvist, any two of the Josi-Klein-Jones group, Fisher (can't trade our most handsome player), and Smith. That's it. Everybody else…it's open season. That should be a big enough available group to package something together and still leave enough for a competent 4th line. Which as we know, is very important. So what do you think? Who should we be targeting…and who are you willing to give up?
