Staal - Girardi
McDonagh - Sauer/Eminger
Del Zotto - Eminger/Sauer
Valentenko (believe he would need to clear waivers to go to the AHL)/veteran 7th dman
Drury retires, is traded, or is bought out.
EDIT: At the deadline, you'd look to upgrade a d position with a UFA veteran, but that is a team that competes to go deep in the playoffs.
I posted something VERY similar somewhere else. I think having a Boyle-Anisimov-Callahan line would be a GREAT shut-down and hard-working line. It would be more a 2B line then a 3. Leave the Wolski-Stepan-MZA line intact and move Dubi up on the 1st line.
Give Prust and Fedotenko PKing duties and about 8-10 minutes a night as they are very good defensively and bring a lot of energy. When injuries occur, move them up. How about Konopka for 4th line center? He fights and is GREAT on faceoffs.
