And if I have to choose between a 15 minute a game support Winger versus a 20 plus minute top 4 D man to trade, I'm keeping the D man. It's a far more important position to a team.
This is key. We know we can make it to the Finals with Carle in the top 4. If we deal him, will Meszaros be the right guy to play with Pronger, or play Kimmo with Pronger and Coburn/Mez?

Briere moving back to RW can fill in for Leino. One of the kids is going to have to fill in for Versteeg, if he's dealt. Or a cheap UFA like Kobasew or someone bigger if possible.

They can keep most of the team by signing Giguere or Leclaire cheaply. Would that make people here happy? Unlikely.

Somebody's going to have to go.
