I would give up Skinner for Quick in a heartbeat. I would NOT give up Marchand. I think his offense and penalty potential makes him extremely valuable.
Skinner is a great player but is now going through his 3rd concussion in two years. He had 2 last year. I would move Turris or Saku Koivu too but i don't think Saku would interest him.
Quick will still probably be harder to get but LA still has more potential to consistently win than Phoenix does.
And also, don't discredit that Miller who has a history of turing things around will also reap the benefits of a new system and new coach.
Just to clarify, the Quick/Smith owner is also the Skinner/Marchand/Turris owner. My team is in my signature.
What I was saying is that the price to acquire either Quick/Smith may have just gone down a bit out of the other GM's desperation for Center help since he is losing Skinner to the concussion.
I'm comfortable moving Miller/Getzlaf for an upgrade, but now I'm wondering if it would take less than that to acquire either of his two goalies. Maybe Lindback/Getzlaf? Or if it's Miller/Getzlaf then I could perhaps try and get a goalie + D (Phaneuf?)
Which is the better target, Quick or Smith, if I go for one?
Also I'll kick the tires on Rask and Halak but not sure I'll get anywhere, but won't hurt to try.
