Barker - Fringe-NHLer living off his draft hype and high production for 1 year on a stacked team
Stoner - Should be our #7 given his contract
And based on that, we simply can't move Burns, as he is our only hope to get elite play out of this season.
We're definitely not getting Kovalchuk or Plekanec, and I highly doubt Jokinen. But keep on saying it if it makes you feel better...
Because despite your subjective interpretations of our blueline, it's still better than most the league.
