Would you pursue this deal?


Feel free to tell me if my tinfoil hat is showing, but:

Just saw via www.nhl.com that the Lightning are sitting Pavel Kubina in the interest of seeing what kind of a market there is for him.

The Tampa Bay Lightning are holding defenseman Pavel Kubina out of the lineup, and he's been asked which teams he would be willing to accept a trade to, the team announced Thursday.

The skinny is that Kubina is in the second year of a two-year deal that carries a $3.8 million cap hit (only having to pay the pro-rated remainder and him being a UFA come July, this should be no problem). On the year, he's played 52 games and has a 3-8-11 line while being +1 on a severely under-performing Tampa squad. Not to mention, he has 46 games of playoff experience and won a Cup with the Lightning in 2004. As for what it would take to get him, I'd be willing to offer something along the lines of Jakub Kindl and a 4th/5th - vaguely basing what Yzerman would find acceptable (in my opinion) upon the Moore deal just completed. We get a rental with playoff experience to play important postseason minutes alongside Jonathan Ericsson, and also manage to open a spot for Brendan Smith next season.

Would you guys do this deal? Think he's realistically worth more/less? Not a fan of Kubina over Kindl? Would you rather trade Ericsson for Kubs? I'd love to see what others think about this possibility.
