Maybe Neuvirth or Holtby could be pried out of Washington, same goes for Harding in Minnesota. And for the right prize we could try and get Schneider or Bernier.

It all depends on how much Yzerman wants to give up and whether he's looking for a short-term or a long-term solution in net.

Third option: Do nothing, trade for some additional picks at the trade deadline and solidify our prospect pool and semi-rebuild in the summer. After all, Marty asked for a chance to contend again or he wouldn't re-sign. Well, that's what he got last season. Now Yzerman has MSL locked up and is in full tank-and-rebuild mode. Brilliant!

Montoya got concussed, so I don't think there's as much of an urgency to trade away Nabokov now, especially given that the other guy is RDP, and that guy is absolutely going to get injured again.
