Phaneuf - Rielly
Gardiner - Finn
Gunnar - Percy

Also, I think of Gunnar and Percy as similar players, not sure if that will work to their advantage or if Gunnar-Blacker or Percy-Blacker would work better. Considering Gunnar might ask for a hefty raise, I can see him getting moved for a cheaper/similar alternative in Percy.

Wouldn't mind trading some of the defensive depth (Holzer, Franson, Loov, Granberg, etc.) for some forwards... although our wings are also starting to get clogged up.
We need a stay at home d-man in there, a hard hitting smart stay at home kind of guy.

Gunanr/Percy are great positional guys, Gardiner is more of a pure offensive specialist(with quick feet to help fix mistakes), Phaneuf-Rielly is a fantastic 1st pairing.

Problem here is only Phaneuf really hits, you need another hitter there.
