Here's a hypothetical; say we keep Doan, replace Whitney with Sullivan and pick up Lombardi in a trade. Pyatt moves on, but we bring back Brule and Chipchura to battle it out for a spot while Torres serves the rest of his suspension. We keep the log jam of defensemen from the six to ten spot and plan on letting them work througb it in camp. So basically we role with...

Sullivan-Hanzal-Vrbata
Doan-Vermette-Boedker
Korpikoski-Lombardi-Brule
Chipchura/Torres-Gordon-Moss
Bissonnette

OEL-Michalek
Yandle-Morris
Klesa-Youngster
YoungsterII

Smith
LOLBarbera

Is that a better or worse group than we had pre deadline last season? I'm tempted to say better. That D corps is just so awesome. Whitney to Sullivan is a big downgrade but, overall I think its a much deeper group up front.

The biggest thing is getting Doan back, obviously. The rest should be easy. Sullivan is probably looking at 2.00m on a one year, tops. If we offer 3m, he basically has to accept. Toronto has like seven centers and we could easily get Lombardi back if we wanted. Brule's phone is not ringing off the hook, I'm sure. Same for Chipchura. Seems pretty easily doable beyond Doan.
