Really not that hard.
Well, I use Plekanec as an example because I think he's the only vet that could give us a first rounder or high end prospect unless you include Gorges in this discussion. Maybe Cole, but it would be hard to justify trading Cole unless we immediately replace him.

The whole reason Gionta and Cole are expendable is because they are on the decline, and that's exactly the reason their value is limited. I actually think trading Gionta for a pick is a good idea, but we need to start using this pick and the cleared capspace from Gionta and the buyouts to bring in players who can contribute now.
