Until we can get a better centre than Grabovski, we need him. As long as we have Grabovski, we need Bozak. As long as we have Bozak & Grabovski, we have little need for Brandon Sutter.

A lineup has to be built from the top down. You don't make a move on the 2nd/3rd lines assuming some other deal at the top of our lineup is going to happen.

Not trying to be negative, honestly asking. I agree with you that it isn`t that out there a proposal, although I wish Shero would not waste the only worthwhile roster player that is tradable (Niskanen OR Despres) on another winger for Malkin, but that is my sense of priorities, which may well be different from the orgs.
Backfill the void that losing Despres would create. He's on a 2-way deal and waiver-exempt.
