Don't get me wrong, I'd love for all of them to stay and I'm not a big fan of deadline trades, but we have to face that possibility.

TK, Dandenault, Begin are gone at the end of the year (before that for Dandy) and I'm not going to lose sleep over it. We have to deal with Tanguay, Kovalev, Koivu, Lang and Komisarek really. Koivu will not stay (most likely). I don't know about Lang, but I'm quite sure Tanguay and Kovy will be here next year.

Anyways, I'm steering off topic here.

Koivu, Higgins, Tanguay, Kovalev, and Latendresse almost surely will remain but Lang won't be re-signed. Higgins and Latendresse are not players you throw into deadline trades unless you can get a very big fish in return. Who knows, Gainey may even trade Lang at the deadline if one of the prospects comes through.
