Looking at the projected lineup will us a better idea.

Tangs-Backlund-Iggy
Moss-Jokinen-Glencross
Stempniak-BMO-player x
player x-Horak-Jackman

I would say the listed players are all pretty safe bets to say and that they will not be moved (except for maybe Moss, but I included him to his chemistry on his line). Based on this lineup, we have 4 extra players to fill two spots in Bouque, Hagman, Kosto and Stajan. I'm not sure that either Stajan or Hagman could be traded (or else I'd venture to say that they would already be gone). So I think either Bouque, Moss or Kosto are gonzo. Maybe even Bouque and Moss in the same deal. Giving us a lineup like this.

Tangs-Backlund-Iggy
Stempniak-Jokinen-Glencross
Hagman-Horak-BMO
Kosto-Stajan-Jackman

This isn't even considering whoever we get in return (Kyle *cough* Turris). But I think if you look at the lineups, someone has to be moved out unless Stajan gets sent down the AHL.
