My Opinion: Most of the trades are probably expecting too much. A trade around Cam Ward and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins isn’t going to happen, while it’s unlikely the Wild trade Matt Cullen, who Canes fans should know is a valuable player.
If the Canes do trade Tim Gleason, which is looking more and more likely, I don’t think it will be a big deal. A trade for John Michael Liles or for picks and/or prospects is what I expect the trade to be.
So I would expect a similar trade to some of the smaller trades Matt has speculated at, rather than big blockbuster between two prominent players.
