Even if we keep Marleau, I want them going after St. Louis:
Heatley-Thornton-Setoguchi/St. Louis
Marleau-Pavelski-Clowe/St. Louis
McGinn-Malhotra-Couture

Didn't realize his salary was front-loaded. So much the better. Also, I think the list of team's he'd waive for is short (San Jose, Vancouver, Philly, Chicago, Washington, Pittsburgh). I guarantee Setoguchi gets them more interested than anything any of those teams could offer. None of them can hand them a top line forward to play with Stamkos for the next decade. Setoguchi may not be an ideal fit, but he is pretty close (for instance I can think of Perron as a guy who would be better).
