Kindl + Flippula + 2nd for Yandle? Does that cut it?
If you are unhappy about Kronwall's defensive play, you would be very unhappy to have Yandle on this team. It has been said numerous times by numerous people, and I'll say it again: Yandle sucks in the defensive end.
Edit: To answer your question, no, that wouldn't do it.
Lashoff on a bad day > Ericsson on a good day times 2
In Bizarro World, sure. In the real universe, Ericsson is having an excellent season.
On a related note, I learned today that Ericsson is ranked 5th amongst defensemen in even strength points.
Barring (among other factors) Bettman allowing the team to circumvent the cap, that roster is not a possibility.
I'd trade Helm+Kindl+2nd for Yandle and resign Flippula as a 3rd line center
Sign Perry in the offseason and we're rebuilt
Phoenix would not bite on that wholly insufficient package.
