For building this team up to a very good team 2 years down the road I have the team broken down into 4 categories:

1. Keepers: Kessel, Phaneuf, Gardiner, Rielly, JVR, 1st rounder this year. Kadri and Lupul are also in this category but towards the bottom end of this group. Kulemin is in this category but could be in category 2 if he wants a big pay cheque after next season.

2. Tradeable Assets with trade value that have a high cap hit relative to their importance to a team or soon will: Grabo, Bozak, Gunnarson, CMac, Liles, Franson (has some trade value but his salary shouldn't be high).

3. Players that won't be overly difficult to replace but serve a role: Frattin, Komarov, Brown, Holzer

4. Players most fans want rid of but have little to no trade value: Connolly, Komisarek, Steckel

Goaltending is still a crapshoot with this team and at the very least we need another young starter with high end potential to platoon with Reimer.

Category 2 is the group we need to try and move out well stocking up on cheap young players with high-end potential, picks in the first 3 rounds and cap space which we can use to replace some of these guys in free agency or when teams are desperately trying to move out salary this off-season.
