Off-season plan:

Keep Pronger, Timonen and Coburn.
Get Suter by acquiring his right for a prospect (not Schenn, Couturier, Gustaffson, Wellwood or Read) and a third round pick, maybe even one of our 2nd round picks.
Sign Suter to a reasonable long term contract in terms of cap-hit (thinking $5.75m max).
Trade Meszaros for a good D prospect and a pick.
Let Carle go.
Give Gustaffson a legit chance to develop.
Sign Wideman, Mitchell, Sarich, Hannan or Sauer for the third pairing over Lilja.

Go with an insane top 4 of Pronger, Suter, Timonen and Coburn and try to develop Gustaffson into another one in advance of Timonen's retirement.

I love Meszaros and if it would work with the cap I'd keep him over the UFA guys I listed, but we might get some good return for him.

If Suter will be too pricey, I'd like Brad Stuart for 2 years.
