Now that we are 20% through the season, I think it is officially time to dub this package valuable. Now, I'm not saying it will land us a Malkin or Stamkos, but for the past 2 years I've been hearing of this package being shipped for just about anyone, be it Crosby, Doan, or even Brent Sopel's fallen cracker.

I am not for trading MayRay or KB4, but given their elevated level of play this year, I would certainly think they are worth more than previously thought. We all know our prospect cupboard isn't the deepest and there are quite a few teams that need these 2 a lot more than we do. 4+ million is a bit steep for a 3rd pairing d-man on the Canucks, and Raymond being a UFA likely will be gone for nothing at the end of the season.

To this end, here are a few trade proposals I've come up with, taking into account the increasing value of our assets:

From NYI:
Nino Niederreiter
Matt Donovan
David Ullstrom

-----------------------

From TOR:
Tyler Biggs
Carter Ashton
Korbinian Holzer

------------------------

From WSH:
Marcus Johannsson
Stanislav Galiev

-------------------------

From FLA:
Alex Petrovic
Quinton Howden

I can honestly say that the FLA one is not gonna happen.

FLA is having trouble keeping some players on their team for next year due to ownership not having enough money. They were so happy to give Ballard away and take a 1st round pick too for being our semi-farm team.

I like Raymond's play this season but let's be honest - he usually plays this way when he's on a contract year. You sign him for a two year contract and he'll go back to being a perimeter-type player again, until the second year kicks in when he has to prove something again. I do think that he's a good PKer and he's a good teammate otherwise.

Sign me up for Niederreiter. Perhaps that could be a draft day deal with the way Ballard and Raymond are playing?

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Schneider going to Minnesota is plausible, indeed.

Why trade a good defenceman and a gritty forward, when they are playing well? Trade a highly-rising Schneider to Minnesota for some offensive talent. That way, you get to keep Raymond, Ballard, and the likes of Parise or Suter.

I never said to trade Ballard Raymond and a pick...I only said that our trades with Florida never make sense from their perspective

How about Ballard to PIT for Deryk Engelland? The both play about 16 minutes a game but Engelland is $500,000 a season and adds more toughness.
