Pac - DD - Cole
Doan - Eller - Gionta
Bourque - LL - Armstrong
Moen - White - Prust

Markov - Gorges
Hjarlmarsson - PK
Kaberle - Diaz
Boullion
Weber

I know we'd miss all that TP does for the team, but we end up giving some valuable development time to some young guys who I think are ready for it.
I like Hjarlmarsson and him + for Plekanec isn't crazy (though a straight up trade would be), though I think losing Plekanec at any rate without a direct replacement means writing off next season, at which point there's no reason to sign Doan.

I also think LL is going to remain a winger, but it depends on other things though.

Subban and Plek for Kane and Hjarlmarsson is funny, it just replaces one problem with another.
