from Justin Bourne of The Score,
Adrian Aucoin His story: Aucoin would be your prototypical “I think this is a guy we can run out there for 15 minutes a night without getting killed” trade deadline pickup. At 39, he’s not going to set the world on fire, but he keeps it simple, doesn’t make a ton of mistakes, and can eat some minutes for you. For a pro-rated $2.25M with an expiring contract, you could do worse.
Jamie McBain His story: I doubt this one happens – a 25-year-old with a low cap hit of $1.8 million that has another season left on his deal – but if the Hurricanes decide this isn’t their year, they could turn him into a pretty decent return. In 2010-2011 he put up 30 points, so you could see why teams would covet him.
Mark Giordano His story: The Flames are a disaster, that’s his story. His cap hit is a reasonable $4 mill for a guy who cracked 40 points a couple years ago and logs over 23 minutes a night on the back-end. But since it’s a fire sale in Cow-Town, they could grab a pretty darn nice return for the 29-year-old who’s under contract until 2016.
