Trade or bury Gomez, Bourque, Kaberle

Get a big winger like Doan to play with Gally/Yak

Third line of Moen, Eller, McClement

Fourth line of Staubitz, Bournival, White

Trade Gionta for possible 2nd line big winger

Go after Suter or settle for a big dman like Shane Obrien but get Tinordi and Beaulieu into the lineup at some point as they are the future.
Why on Earth would you need to bury Gomez, Bourque and Kaberle when your roster is not in danger of being anywhere near the salary cap.

I understand you are aiming for the 2013 first overall pick, which is a flawed strategy in itself as even finishing last gives you less than 50% chance of getting it, but if you ruin existing promising prospects by rushing them to the nhl when they're not ready then what's really the point?
