I'm not going to go into a lot of detail, but I wanted to piece together what a rumoured asking price is for Dan Hamhuis, arguably one of the hottest commodities on the trade wire this week. The Predators look to be looking for a roster player and a top end prospect for Hamhuis, which is pretty expensive, but that's the cost of winning in the end. The Predators are stacked in defensemen as it is, but it really is turning into the Defenseman Market Place at this deadline, much like it was last season as well. This cost might be a little too high for a team like the Flyers, as Parent has a lot of upside, but just lacks in the ability department right now to crack the roster. The numbers here are interesting, I would be keen to hear what other offers are on the table, if any.
