I'd keep Fehr if possible, but yeah, if we have a realistic shot at getting Filatov (and if GMGM gets the chance to really evaluate his situation, actually talk to him ahead of time and make sure he's not too much of a risk, etc.), then boy I hope GMGM shows some interest.

Trade for Filatov
Consider shopping Semin (maybe for D) or keep him through this contract and let him go when he prices himself out of our range.

All of the sudden you've, potentially, put off a major cap issue for another few years. You can afford to let Semin go when you've got someone who, stylistically and in terms of skill, is probably a little bit of development away from being a natural successor.

I know, it's not realistic, but wouldn't it be fun?
