In every case it is hard to see an easy way out. Minimize the losses and get at least something out of it - then move on. If one is able to negotiate a good trade with the compensation picks and at the same time saves a truckload of money, it is possible to rebuild a winning team.
I think Philly's reluctance to include Schenn and/or Couturier in any deal is the reason why we are where we are today.
