Trade Koivu, Kovalev, Tanguay, Lang, Boullion, Dandenault and Hamrlik. No need for veterans on the team. Brisebois can be put on waivers.

Trade Higgins, Plekanec, Latendresse and D'Agostini. RFA's are the risk of being picked up in the off season or we'd have to overpay for them. Hell, if we can't take them, lets just hope for someone to pick them off RFA and take the picks.

Trade Laraque, O'Byrne, Kostopolous and Begin. Clearly this team has no use for third stringers and fourth liners and the last we need to do is overpay for a tough guy. We made that mistake with Georges. Cut them loose.

Lose the Kostitsyn brothers. Young or not they clearly are already inconsistent. Can't deal with another season of inconsistency.

Mike Komisarek will cost us far too much in free agency. Trade him.

Andrei Markov is our only real "superstar" and is our leading scorer. That means he'd be wonderful trade bait. Who wouldn't want to add Markov on his salary?

Maxim Lapierre and Josh Gorges are young and have good priced contracts. Very good value to toss with an injured Lang to make sure a deal gets done.

Max Pacioretty is one of our hardest workers. I bet we could net a first round pick plus for him.

Jaroslav Halak is not that good of a backup. Fernandez, Clemmenson and Anderson? Those are good back-ups. He can get going.

Carey Price is clearly Jim Carey. Flash in the pan. Certainly nowhere near as good as Mason in Columbus. What a joke. Maybe McGuire was right, he was the wrong move. Colorado always loves goalies from us. Third times a charm right?

What does that leave us with?

Oh right, a different team.
