Blockbuster deals, no.
Big signings, depends on what you call big??
I believe this is the first summer though that Gainey may feel, he & his group have a good idea of who amongst the younger players can be dealt, who they should. Plus with a second wave starting/progressing into their development stages (Valentenko, Carle, Maxwell, Wyman, White, Trotter, McDonagh, Pacioretty & Weber), there is wiggle room to make some moves & it is time to stockup for the next wave.
IMO, Grabvosky is prime time trade bait to pick up extra picks. Maybe the rights to Perezoghin as well. A guy like Cory Locke may bring back a 5th or 6th rd pick.
Or he could become bold & move one or some of more highly touted kids, Chipchura, O'Bryne, Gorges, Latendresse, Halak &/or the rights to the likes of Fischer, Emelin(which I highly doubt) or Korneev?
I think the options that Gainey has this summer far exceeds any he had since joining this club as GM.
