Given the fact that LAK is a defensively-minded team with the presence of Quick and Doughty, if they were to try and acquire Hjalmarsson, would they not try trading Simon Gagne and slightly more, since the salaries of Gagne and Hjalmarsson are almost the same? Chicago would gain offense and depth, whereas, LA solidifies their defense with not only Hjalmarsson, but also with Bernier still in LA.
I think Hjalmarsson is worth more. The whole point of this is to take away a significant piece from both sides to add a big need to both side, not to add a need to one side and add unneeded depth to the other.
Whats your proposal though?
