I would keep both Cooke and Dupuis over Kennedy. They play important roles on this team, are familiar with the system and are relatively inexpensive. They're the kind of players that give a GM flexibility to go out and get other guys, and the kind of players most Cup winners have on their roster.

I think Kennedy can be effectively replaced by Jeffrey (Cooke moves to RW where he's played in the past), or Tangradi, even though neither of those guys is as fast as Kennedy and both have a different style of play. Money-wise and system-wise though it could still work.

But the biggest albatross is Martin (not Redden-like but still enough to cause us problems next year). He has to be Shero's #1 priority in terms of trade or buy-out. There's not a close second.
