We don't necessarily even need an elite top 6 type, which would be great and is very possible with Doan and Semin still out there, just two tweeners to play on the 3rd.
Tyler Kennedy for Douglas Murray and that is it. We have no prospects and I don't want to trade Demers or Braun. Clowe won't get much since he is a pending UFA and I want to keep him because he will stick up for his teammates and beat the crap out of his opponents. I would prefer to have a good winger to play with Jumbo than having Pavs play with him. To me Pavs is a far better center than winger.
So sign Doan and trade Murray for Kennedy.
Marleau Jumbo Doan
Clowe Couture Havlat
Wingels Pavelski Kennedy
Galiardi Desjardin Burish
This is what we can do without trading Boyle or Pavelski. This is a pretty good lineup. I rather sign Semin so that we have a very good winger to play with Jumbo but I know DW won't sign him.
Boyle and Pavelski are our only good trade assets. Murray will get us a 2nd/3rd line tweener and we are better off keeping Clowe. Demers and Braun have potential and can take over for Boyle so I rathe keep them.
