trading JVR now or in the immediate future would be stupid.

1. His value is at an all time low and won't go back up unless he gets a chance to play a long stretch of games

2. He's only 23 and has plenty of time to develop. I understand he was inconsistent even when "healthy" this year but watch his scoring highlight video for this season, he still made some great plays.

Couts, Schenn, G, JVR, Simmonds and Jake all under 24 and I would try to keep them together going forward.

get d though free agency and the draft. if cap is a concern then move Briere (i know he's got a NMC) plus kimmo is coming off soon and will be re-signed for much less. the cap will also continue to go up (maybe not next season but def the following year) and Jagr will be gone after another year or so.

The D is not as bad as people make it out to be. Limit the turnovers and commit to the system as a 5 man unit. with Bryz in net I don't see this as a problem at all.
