The key is that you must keep in mind our depth chart and not include players who would need an accompanying trade to be effective (e.g. Kessel wouldn't be a good fit without a playmaking centre).
My Reccomendation: The most bang for our buck would come from moving Stajan to 3rd line from first. The guy that I think could be had for the right price would be Patrice Bergeron; and if he can regain his form, he should be able to get better production out of a guy like Lee Stempniak.
Why is Blake a third liner? Does he not make like 5mill a year? It bothers me to see what has become of this franchise.
