McLaren to Bolts???

The Boston Globe reports that Tampa has offered forward Fredrik Modin straight up for holdout defenseman Kyle Mclaren. Seems like a solid proposal from Tampa, and a good possible trade for the B’s. Modin is just a year removed from a 30+ goal season, and has a rediculously hard shot. While Mclaren could stabilize Tampa’s defense. Doesn’t seem to make as much sense as the proposed Colorado deal, but I’m beginning to think that trade proposal never happened. If I’m O’Connell I’m starting to look very long and hard at the Tampa proposal. As opposed to sitting around and waiting for the perfect deal that is not going to happen.
