Nobody is safe at this point and we could very well see a significant shake up if this team hovers in the 8th/9th spot or less.
Thanks for the info Chuck, very good news to my ears.

I completely agree with Nonis that this team is further then Burke thought. I for one think that trading Kessel could be a situation were we have a temporary loss this year and next year, but a gain that will come in future years.

It'd start but us getting the assets for him, and also being able to finish in the bottom five again to add two to three high quality players (one or two via Kessel trade and one via draft).

A few people posted it, but maybe with the ROR situation a deal around ROR + 1st 2013 could work?
