This will be my last post on the topic for now.

If you are serious about building a strong team down the road including any players currently here, you can't trade everybody and hang them out to dry for 2-3 years and expect them to come out super productive and key players in 2-3-4 years.

You said Cammalleri only had a year left on his contract in fact he had 2 1/2 PLUS he makes 7 mil the last 2 years, so forget about trading him to smaller markets. When you combine his cap hit, salary, 2 1/2 years left plus the level of his play this year, I think we made out like bandits.

I think Bourque and Plekanec can be a strong pair if they can find soimebody that clicks on the other side, obviously Gomez wasn't. Bourque has a great cap hit for a guy that averages 25+ goals a year 3.3 mil plus his last 2 years salary drops to 2.5 mil(14-15 and 15-16) so if things don't work out he is easy to move.
