I'd do this as an Ottawa fan.

Out
Spezza (29) 2 years left @ 7 cap hit
Michalek (27) 1 year left @ 4.333 cap hit
Methot (27) 2 years left @ 3 cap hit

In
Couture (23)
Vlasic (25) 5 years left @ 4.25 cap hit

The two assets coming from San Jose are incredibly valuable: 5 years of a 25-year old D-man who is a legit #2, and Couture who is currently an elite 2nd line C and could become a 1st line C as he matures.

Spezza is the best player in the deal, but he's also the oldest and ,like Michalek, has a history of injury.

As long as Couture is willing to stay for the long haul, this is a no-brainer for me.
