The preds have to do something. This is a team on the verge of becomming irelevant in their home-town. They need a true #1 scoring centre and no team can be successfull with rem murray on their 2nd line.

izzy + comrie for legwand and hamhuis

smyth - legwand - york
torres - oates - devo
ethan - reasoner/stoll - pisani
hemsky - horcoff - laraque

brewer - cross
smith - hamhuis
staios - semenov
Isbister isn't going anywhere this season. Lowe is going to hold on to him for a season at least. He gave up so much to get him that there is no way he is leaving this fast.
