Trade Zednik, Ribeiro, Souray to Minnesota for there 1st (9th overall)
Trade Abiesher to STL for future considerations
Draft Okposo (at 9)
Draft Strait or Wishart (at 16)
Sign Kim Johnsson from UFA pool
Sign Langunbrunner from UFA pool
Go with the following lineup:
Higgins, Koivu, Ryder
Perezhogin, Plekanek, Kovalev
Latendresse, Bonk, Langunbrunner <--- Perhaps finishing the year with Latendresse, Chipchura and Langunbrunner
Begin, Lapierre, Murray
Johnsson is a right D and that makes us very small/non-physical on defense. Rivet is undersized for the game he plays, remember. I'm not a fan of Langenbrunner myself. I like his work ethic, but he's a big expensive for a third line guy, no? I'd take him if he's affordable though. I doubt very very much he'll leave Jersey considering that he was disappointed to leave Dallas and seems like a loyal guy.
Plus, the kids you named will probably not be ready and Koivu/Plekanec is a very small 1-2 punch.
