Stafford is a solid base, I'd just add different assets. I'd also do the deal if we could get Gleason/Robidas on the relative cheap.

I'd also move Roy and take a chance at Ryan centering either Vanek/Pominville or Ennis/Stafford. Either tandem has shown that they can produce with a warm body, and Ryan's skillset would provide so much more. He's also been tried at center before, with a fair amount of success.

I know trading Roy goes against the "you need centers to win" school of thought, and it's not something I'd do lightly, but we've already shown we can make the playoffs without Derek, and we didn't exactly need him when we got there. In fact, we needed someone with Ryan's skillset far more when the Flyers sat on leads. I think the change in the complexion of the forwards would be worth it, even if it makes us temporarily worse down the middle.
