The packages are definitely not exact, but I think there's a solid base there.

The whole thing would be conditional on signing Bryzgalov July 1st, obviously. He's not at the same level Miller is, but he's still very good and would come about a million dollars cheaper than what we're paying Ryan. As much as I like the guy, I just don't think any goalie is worth more than 5,000,000.

Stafford-Statsny-Vanek
Pominville-Roy-Boyes (which will henceforth referred to as the "PBR line")

Approximately 7 mil left to spend after giving Stafford a raise to 4 mil and bringing in a couple fresh bodies on the 3rd line to replace Nieds and Grier...more than enough to try and hit a homerun with one great defender or two tougher minute eaters
I would like to make a deal like that but if they are in a 'win within 3 years' mode then Miller won't be moved. I don't see him moving anyway to be honest. Not to mention it would take a lot more to get Stastny and Liles.

Something like

Stafford, Ennis, Enroth, Butler, 1st

That is what it would likely take. And I'd still do it.

Vanek-Stastny-Pominville
Hecht-Roy-Boyes
Gerbe-3rd line C-Kassian
McCormick-Gaustad-Kaleta

Liles-Myers
Leopold-Morrisonn/Montador
Sekera-Weber

Miller
Capable backup
