Last year it was surprisingly late. I think it's either a week or two before the draft.

Have a feeling Lou holds onto this one, unless he finds a way to deal into the first round. If this team isn't playing to well, I hope Lou can package off someone like Zidlicky and maybe Zajac, depending on how that situation is going.

I think it would be pretty funny/cool if he agrees to trade Elias or Zubrus and they agree that they will resign in the off season regardless. Basically like a "We won't make the playoffs so we're going to get assets for you and give you a better shot to win". Elias would fetch a hell of a return if you ask me, I think we'd easily get a first for him, probably a top prospect too.
