Do we have the talent the B's do? No.
But really not that far off.
PIT:Gaborik(7.5), Bourque and the rights to Gilroy, Valentenko, Weise. maybe a late round pick if needed.
NYR: Staal(4), Kunitz(3.725), Niskanen(1.5) 1st round 2011. PIT cap savings 1.75.
Then another trade:
FLA: 15 and 23 picks in 2011, Anisimov, Niskanen, Christensen, Wolski and rights to Chad Johnson.
NYR: 3rd overall(Landeskog) and a second rounder.
Then trade Kunitz for a pick or a project goalie.
Then see what free agency does and who we can get. My thinking is our D is getting better and better but we need a PMD. Sign Christian Ehrhoff/James Wisniewski. Then sign Fedotenko, Jokinen and see what BR wants if too much offer sheet Zach Parise 5-6 mill.

I'd like an explanation as to how Parise comes that cheap, as if Lou wouldn't match that...
