If you rid yourself of Corvo (expiring contract), A Ward, and maybe one of Whitney, Walker or LaRose at the deadline, you leave room for some youngsters next year AND get the corresponding help with salaries. Couple that with maybe Wallin and Brind'Amour (a guy can dream) leaving the organization, I think the Canes are a really good team next year. Growing pains, yes, but also lots of excitement.
I like the way you're thinking. I see us in the mix for the #8 spot next year, Hall or no Hall, and likely back to where we were expecting to be the year after. Hopefully we can find another Sutter/Boychuk type in the mid first in 2011 as well as find some real good players with the picks we get for guys like Corvo, A Ward, Whitney and Cullen.
