Simply shuffling him out does not address what remains a glaring team weakness. The sacrifice you speak of may or may not help in the short term and will certainly provide another obstacle to be overcome now and in the future.

And I don't think this team needs just one guy to shake things up. A first line center, a legit #1 defenseman, any sort of competitent crease-clearing stay-at-home defenseman, a top 6 winger with size (which they might have in both Pyatt and Kotalik on the roster--performance will bear that out--and with Vanek on the way), a true #1 netminder... Without these in place, this team is a pretender at best.

to Buff Parrish and Hamrlik
to NYI Drury, McKee and a 2nd
