TAKE IT.. you're not giving up any starters, that includes Pavelski.. how in the world is Bobby Ryan not a starter? he'll score at least 35-40 goals and probably end up in the range of 75-85 points.. look who he;s playing with! come on!
You see this is a classic case of thinking quantity will get you quality. This trade should never go through. The guy giving away Heatley and Miller isn't getting much in return.
Roloson is one of 5 or 6 goalies rotating for the Islanders, Taveras is all but hype right now, Kessel is out until I believe November due to shoulder surgery, and Pavelski isn't much of a chip.
You not going to get both Heatley and Miller. You NEED another top goaltender, so shoot for this:
Maybe use Perry as your main chip to try and get a top goaltender like Miller or Steve Mason.
If you don't want to give up a lot then I'd look with Seto or Ryan and look to grab Ray Emery or Pekka Rinne.
