I would definitely try to shed Gomez and Kaberle - and especially Weber - but what could we conceivably do to replace them? I feel like Bergevin won't just make trades until he's had an adequate understanding of how the players could play individually outside of the coveted Jacques Martin Trap-a-doodle-doo.

Maybe Eller will finally wake up? Bourque falls back on form? Pleks should produce at a higher clip too - and feed Gionta.

These aren't, and shouldn't be, loftly goals and if they reach them we're gonna have a good team. The only role I really, really feel we lack is a precision slapper on the PP, Wiz would look so good back there, but can we make do with Souray (if we drop Kabs)?

You saw how many games they lost by a goal late in the third. They're better than that. They're better than the Leafs, better than the Sens, better than the Sabres even. They should be a middle-playoff team as they are now.
