Seriously, were so screwed it's not even funny.
Sure you can trade Lupul, Jones, Knuble etc...but they are the work horses that complete a team. One player doesn't complete a team.
Just my $.02
One player does not complete a team, I definitely agree....however, Jones can easily be replaced by Parent or Kukkonen with Carle here.
Lupul can be replaced by Giroux/JVR.....If Briere is being moved, somone needs to replace those 75+ points he will give us when healthy. Like I mentioned to Jester in my previous post, If I am trying to win a cup, I want more than Gagne, Richards and Carter that I can truly rely on in my top 6. Hartnell/Lupul are not there in my opinion and Knuble is not that guy at even strength.
