It needs to be similar to what was done to maximize our opportunity with Jagr the final years here. Nylander and Straka were the core elements aside from Jagr and Lundqvist...then you added Shanahan, Avery, Cullen, etc. and gave yourself a team that IMO save a couple of bad breaks in Buffalo probably made it to the stanley cup finals because I believe we matched up better against Ottawa than Buffalo did that year. Albeit, our chances against Anaheim wouldn't have been good, you never know what's going to happen in a 7 game series.
We got Shanny and Cullen in UFA and Avery for Jason Ward and MAC who was like a Dale Weise level prospect.

The Derek Morris and Antropov trades were ones where we gave up young players/assets.
