For me, the only untouchable Canadiens are Markov, Komisarek, Kastitsyn because they are unique talents AND young.
Everyone else should be available.
Koivu could bring a lot in return, is getting older, could be a UFA at the end of his contract depending on CBA, and keeps getting hurt. Therefore, he's not untouchable.
Theodore is overpaid and is not proving to anyone that he is a real Hart Trophy goalie, and we have a No.1b in the wings with Garon.
I don't think anyone else qualifies for an argument, they are all tradeable. However, it doesn't make much sense trading Koivu in a package deal for one player who will have nobody to play with.
I would only deal Koivu FOR a package, not IN a package.
That doesn't leave much to deal for Iginla: Zednik, Bulis, Ribeiro, Hainsey, 2004 draft picks...
Sutter won't want Hainsey or Ribeiro (they aren't "Sutter" players), so that leaves Zednik, Bulis, Ward or Kilger as a throw-in maybe... not too much, he would easily be able to top that package if he went elsewhere.
If we took on Turek and gave them Theodore and picked up money on the contract, he might blink tho.
So my offer would be:
Theodore (pick up 2 mil/year), Zednik, (Bulis or Hossa) and 2nd rounder 2004
I would then turn around and get Comrie for Ribs and whatever.
In both deals, we would get the best player in the deal, so we win judging by the Sam Pollock method.
However, are our kids ready to step into the top 6 roles?
(Bulis or Hossa)-Koivu-Iginla
Buy out Audette and trade Perreault.
On second thought... we should also get a package in return for Theo that includes a proven, young goalscorer...
