Heck, Knuble only had 21 goals and 46 points last year and that's playing with Thornton.
Amonte is the easiest to replace. He's not a playmaker so all you really have to do is replace his 20 goals. Something I think Knuble will be able to do if he's played with Zhamnov-Roenick.

The difficult part will be LeClair and Recchi's regular season numbers. Handzus really clicked with them. It might take them two lines to make up the slack, which is why I think they need to sign Carter and put Gagne on his line. IMO Gagne has a much better chance at 30-30 with Carter than he does with Handzus.
