gilroy isnt going to bring much back. same for sangs. no real value there. then again, nor sure if those 2 are in the plans for next year at all anyway. those 2 dont cost much so im inclined to say keep them rather than give them away

roster players have value, especially dan girardi. dan in a package with rozy would perhaps be of value but we would expect to have to take salary back in return and if so, we would be looking for some goals.

a deal could be built around those 2 i would think. especially if we sign mcd.

we would absolutely need to look at a vet/fa dman coming in if that happens as im not sold on matt gilroy playing top 4 minutes.

a package built around girardi or dubinsky and rozy, would be interesting. again, we would need a top 6 forward in return who has either fallen out of favor or has a so-so contract that a team is looking to unload.

we need goals. period.
I agree.

I think we can afford to send some of our defensive pieces since we have (according to the be all end all of rankings per this board, the #2 goalie in the world). Teams like Chicago and Philly and even Pittsburgh and Detroit, have to make up for their "deficiency" in goal by adding more talent at defense.

I think we could get by even with an average defense with Hank in net. The problem is NOT and I repeat NOT keeping goals out, its putting goals in.

If we have a much better offense, without really touching the defense save for a minor move, and Hank in net, it improves our chances drastically. I really truly believe that.
