In my opinion, they have to look at their Core Competencies (Strengths). Their #1 competency is goaltending. Their future plan should be based around re-signing Price to a long term deal at the end of 2009-10. They should then build from that strength and put one of the Top Defenses in the League in front of him.

Here's how I would go about it:

1) Trade the Kastsityn brothers to Florida for Jay Bo.

2) At the end of the year re-sign

Jay Bo 4yrs
Komi 4yrs
Kosto 2yrs
Plek 2yrs
Higgins 2yrs
Stewart 2yrs
Chipchura 2yrs
Latendresse 2yrs
D'Agostini 2yrs
Koivu 2yrs. (Let the rest walk).

3) Sign a mid-level free agent. (2nd line winger)

2009-10 Starting lineup Cap is at $56 Million
D'Agostini Koivu Higgins = $ 8 Million
Pacioretty Plekanec (UFA) = $ 8 Million
Latendresse Lapierre Kotsopolous = $ 2.5 Million
Stewart Chipchura Laraque = $ 3 Million
Maxwell = $850 K
Forwards = $22.350 Million

Komisarek Markov = $11 Million
Hamirlik Jay Bo = $12 Million
Gorges Weber = $2 Million
O'Byrne = $950 K
Defense = $25.950 Million

Price = $2.3 Million
Halak = $775 K
Goaltenders = 3.075 Miilion

Total: $51.375 Million

End of 2009-10

1) Re-sign Price and Desjardins.

2) Trade Hamirlik for picks.

3) Forwards more or less stay the same, unless prospects develop.

2009-10 Starting Lineup: Cap is at $53 Million.

D'Agostini Koivu Higgins = $ 8 Million
Pacioretty Plekanec (UFA) = $ 8 Million
Latendresse Lapierre Kotsopolous = $ 2.5 Million
Stewart Chipchura Laraque = $ 3 Million
Maxwell = $850 K
Forwards = $22.350 Million

Komisarek Markov = $11 Million
(McDonnagh, Subban, Fischer) Jay Bo = $8.5 Million
Gorges Weber = $2 Million
O'Byrne = $950 K
Defense = $22.450 Million

Price = $ 7 Million
Desjardins = $800 K
Goaltenders = $7.8 Million

Total = $52.600 Million

This is officially the worst post I've ever read. There is no way that any of this happens simultaniously.
I'm speachless
