Looks like Gomez and/or Kaberle will be bought out depending on the new CBA.

Plekanec is likely out for the first month of a condensed season. We'll see how Markov holds up with that many games.

I'd leave Galchenyuk in the minors, re-sign Darche, and use Eller on the second line. Wait and see if the team is competitive with the new 3rd/4th lines and more experienced defence. I'd try to sign Kostitsyn one year if they don't look bad. If they look good call up Galchenyuk.

Hmm, wrong thread.
First, not sure where you get that Plekanec is "likely out" for any period of time, he was checked out at the hospital and nothing found. If he was to miss 2 weeks, he'd miss NO NHL games.

Second, we can't sign Kostitsyn, he has a KHL contract for this year...not just a lock out contract but a regular one. He signed KHL before the lock out.

Third, Galchenyuk can't paly in the minors as he is 18, so it's OHL or NHL. I hope he stays OHL but he can play nHL and contribute right now, I just think it would be best for his development to finish the year oHL and make the jump at 19.

Fourth, I don't see how the Bourque trade looks bad, cammy has a huge contract and the cap is dropping, even with a late resurgence in Calgary he isn't worth anywhere near a 6 mil cap hit in the new CBA. With any kind of bounce back bourque will be worth his cap hit. PLUS we got a good prospect and a 2nd rounder. Great deal for us.
