The assets we have to use (in order of likelihood of using them) IMO:

Koistenen
Minor goalie prospect
O'Reilly
Franson
Hornqvist
Other minor prospects
Ortmeyer
Mid-level prospects
Bonk
Ellis
DeVries
Hamhuis
Klien/Sulzer

Most likely teams to trade with (in order) IMO:

Toronto
Buffalo
Ottawa
Carolina
Philly
Colorado


Some potential trades IMO (most likely in bold):

Antropov for Koistenen and a pick (3rd)
Poni for Koistenen, minor prospect (Maki/Flynn) and a pick (4th)
Poni for Hornqvist and a pick (6th)
Poni for Franson

Afinagenov for a pick (5th)
Connolly or Kotilik plus Lalime for Ellis, Koistenen and two picks (4th and 7th)
Vermette for Ellis and Franson
Vermette for Ellis, Hornqvist and a minor prospect
Chad LaRose for Koistenen and a 5th
Scott Walker for a 7th
Upshall for Ellis and Franson (after trading Biron)
Lupul for Hamhuis (I think Lupul has less value than most think)
Lupul for Ellis, O'Reilly and a pick (ditto)
Lupul for Franson, O'Reilly (ditto)
Svatos for Koistenen, O'Reilly and a pick
Hejduk for O'Reilly and Franson and a pick
....Satan off waivers


Some of these are under-payment some overpayment- I'm guessing not making offers.
I think the Preds wind up keeping DeVries and Bonk for the playoff push.

EDIT: To avoid brick throwing, I have to say I think I'm way off on value on some of these, particularly Vermette.
