Take a listen to this podcast, which brought up another intriguing possibility for a Barrie trade. This podcast says we trade Tyson Barrie for some combination of picks and prospects, then sign PK Subban as a free agent for $2 million for the third right side D spot for one year.

Subban is 33 now and has played a lot of hard miles so he’s not the same player he was when he put up 60 points in Montreal, but he did put up 22 points for the Devils last season and could possibly put up more playing on a better team.

Personally I think this plan is riskier than my trade proposal, so I think I’d rather not do this one, but that’s just me.

Something else to be concerned about with Subban – he’s swiss cheese defensively as he’s been on the minus side of the ledger for three seasons straight, but in his defence he was playing on a rebuilding team in New Jersey.

But hey…..Dave Manson….am I right? Could he pull another rabbit out of his hat? Maybe.
