STAFF

-Melanson fired. Bring Allaire.
-Bob Hartley : 2 years deal.
-Keep Bob Gainey one more year.
-Bring Charron and Proulx to assist Hartley ; Muller and Jarvis fired.
-Bring Claude Lemieux and Vincent Damphousse in the organisation with some basic jobs for now.

RE-SIGN

-Kovalev. Give him the 'C' for one year. One year option.
-Komisarek : max offer 3.75M$ or too bad.
-Tanguay : give him 4M$ / 4 years deal.
-Lang : one year, major paycut.
-Kostopoulos : 2 year deal.

LET GO :
-Koivu
-Dandenault
-Bouillon
-Schneider

TRADE :
-Higgins
-Halak

-O'Byrne
*Kost Bros. if we can get a major player ('ala' Lecavalier or Kovalchuk)
*Plekanec if we can get an other center ('ala' J.Staal)
-Some prospects (time to move for some established players)

AIM UFAs :

1-Gaborik or Havlat (injure prone, but explosive players, if they accept decent salaries) ; Hossa if he doesn't resign with Detroit.
2-Top 3 defenseman : Beauchemin or Ohlund. I can live with a Boynton, Leopold or Kalinin.
3-A hard-nose player. I definitely see Knuble here. If not (and if we can't get a number one winger), one or two of these guys :
Forward : Antropov, Cole, Moen, Laperriere, Bertuzzi, Kotalik.
4-Backup veteran goalie (Fernandez, Garon, Roloson. I'd like a Biron or Khabibulin but they still can be number 1).
5-One more D-men (for depth):
D-men : Gauthier, M.A.Bergeron, Spacek, Boucher.

Guess I'm dreaming... But if they decide which direction to take sooner than later, I hope we will see some major moves from my list.
highlighted the biggest mistakes
