I think they would want JVR mainly due to the fact that he's signed for 6 more years at a low cap hit if he hits his potential. He also doesn't seem like the type of guy who would complain about going to Phoenix. He already stated he'd go to Columbus. This is also assuming Holmgren doesn''t include Schenn or Couturier.

JVR+Read+Cousins+2012 1st+2013(2nd).

I'd honestly be willing to make that pick in 2013 a 1st too.

A core of:

Giroux/Couturier/Schenn/Voracek/Simmonds/Yandle/Coburn/Grossman

All locked up for the future(expecting Voracek/Simmonds to be here long term).

Trade Bob for a pick/prospect.

Not to mention the fact we have money to go after Weber next season.

Hartnell-Giroux-Jagr(3.0)
Voracek(3.5)-Schenn-Briere
Simmonds-Couturier-Langenbrunner(2.5)
Wellwood-Talbot-Prust(1.4)
Rinaldo

Yandle-Grossman
Coburn-Timonen
Meszaros-Gus

Bryz
Biron(1.2)

Even possibly go Yandle/Meszaros and Coburn/Grossman and let Timonen get easy minutes and mentor Gus.
Capgeek isn't working for me, but approximately 1.5 left in cap space. I am counting Schenn's(3.1) and put Pronger on LTIR.
