Russell only makes 1.3 and he's an RFA after this contract expires. Depending on what you can get, I think it makes more sense to trade Cole who we perceive to have a higher value.

Should be interesting to watch.
Russell is a guy that Hitch really likes as well, I'd be surprised to see him moved.

I would assume that Crombeen is linked to Langenbrunner. If we do bring back Langenbrunner, then there isn't space for Crombeen. Sobotka - Nichol - Langenbrunner would be the likely 4th line, and that would leave D'Agostini, Reaves and Crombeen.

Kinda of like how the EJ deal was something that he had discussed for a while before hand with the Avs GM.
That is what I'm expecting, a summer of a lot of talking to other GM's with little to no movement but the potential of an in-season trade.
