Personally, I would start trading our players for draft picks and prospects while still making a push with guys like O'Sullivan and Voloshenko taking over.
What I'm saying is push for the playoffs. If you can make a deal that improves the team, do it, but you don't _need_ to make a deal. You can still push for the playoffs with what you've got. Might not make it, but that doesn't mean you're giving up on the possibility. I don't think using guys like O'Sullivan and Voloshenko is going to get it done. While we've got some guys that might be valuable to certain teams looking for a little more depth on D or a good backup goaltender, it wouldn't really be the end of the world if our UFAs left for no return. Most of them came in for nothing, too.
