And these player, exept Rivet are all in their last contract year so maybe we could have picks for these players(just like Gilmour to Toronto for a 6th rounder) In that way, we could give some ice-time to the young prospect to be more ready for the next season.

Do you guys think some team would have interest in these players???
I've got no problem with trading Perreault, for the obvious reasons that are often looked to.

We are only paying Quintal $450 000 this season, so by the time playoffs come around, I would be expecting to see him on an above average team as a good, solid, depth guy, considering he will be making next to nothing.

I get the feeling that Sundstrom could be Czerkawski all over again, minus the scoring. We're looking at an above average player, who has for the most part been misused and misunderstood. He's not going to score 20 goals, but he can sure prevent at least that. With our 29th ranked penalty kill, he is very useful. However, Julien needs to find a place for him on the third line every night, and he needs to play 15:00 from day to day. If Sunny has a bad game, keep with him, he'll break out of the slump. We can't expect him to play his 'role' if he's playing with three different centreman each week. Same can be said for Kilger, give them a playing role and let them make it happen. If Sundstrom does go, I think he'll go to New Jersey or Calgary. He'd be incredible for either team. When Bob speaks of wanting players to perform like they can so that he can judge the team, there's no doubt he's talking about #37.

If we trade Rivet, than we will need to find another defenceman somewhere. The thought of Bouillon, heart and soul guy that he is, playing in our top-six next year makes me cringe. Should have kept Robidas.
