They aren't moving Coburn, in fact, it looks like they signed Grossmann to play with him.

Grossman is the replacement for Pronger, stylistically, although you never replace Pronger.

Note that Grossman will make what Carle does now, and I would not be surprised to see Carle resigned too. There are lots of ways to do it. Carle wants to stay, so he could settle for one year at $5M (Pronger's actual salary) and then go for a longer deal after Kimmo's gone next year. It doesn't seem we'll keep Kubina, but he might be an option if they decide to trade Meszaros and sign Carle.

Timonen-Meszaros
Grossmann-Coburn
Carle-Bourdon
Lilja-Gustafsson

We'll see.
