Hope you're right, that would be a great deal for us.
I sort of see it the same way Rummy does, the Canucks were willing to move him for two 2nds at the deadline so teams probably aren't offering a whole lot more at this point unless, like Topper says, Gillis can create some sort of bidding war with a team like the Flyers.
The ace in the hole for Gillis would be to take back a contract, say Upshall and his $3.5M contract for next two years, and buy-out that deal in order to get back something more significant in return. But if what HW and others say is right, that Aquaman isn't keen on buy-outs, then we shouldn't really expect that to happen.

Maybe the Flames will use a 1st rd pick on...it.
This is the problem, what is the point in trading for a goalie like Bernier when we know we are not going to be competing for the next season or two. He gets hung out to dry on a nightly basis and thinks "I'm off" when it gets to FA time.
