Also we could move out one of Weber or Diaz for a team looking for a cheap PP weapon and that could open up a spot next year for Tinordi, St. Denis, or maybe even Beaulieu.

It always sucks to lose but if you have to have a crappy season I prefer for it to be a half season and if there is a strong sellers market at the deadline we could have a really quick turn around.
The same Cole who is threatening retirement? You'd be hard pressed to get a bag of pucks for him.
