Yes, he can. Just not sure when.

Moore is a capable, fast , two-way 3rd line centerman. For the right price, i'd welcome him back. I'd like Winnik back, but again, price is everything. Galiardi is a must. His qualifying offer will be low, and we need to retain SOMETHING from the failed McGinn trade. Mitchell... absolutely not.

One last cup run would be nice, but our top 3 guys are getting real old and we might need to look to the future much sooner than expected. I dont see DW trading patty or jumbo, so that leaves boyle.

Who do we trade? Boyle is the logical answer. He has a trade window that opens July 1st, but DW may end up holding onto him. I hear a lot of talk about moving Nemo, but until Greiss proves he can handle the load, it's not wise to move Niemi. I dont see us moving Havlat or Pavelski or Couture. That really just leaves Clowe, but I still don't even see him being moved.

I assume we sign some quality depth and make one more run. We'll probably make at least one trade, too, although I'm not sure for who.
