Giving us a forwards corps of this:

Cervenka Backlund Hudler
Glencross Stajan Cammy
Sven Horak Comeau

Wideman Brodie
Bouwmeester Butler
Smith Sarich

That lineup leaves a lot to be desired, but it gives us a ton of cap room to sign a decent center, and another top 4 dman. It would also give us 4 potential x 1st picks (our current one, one from Iggy and Tangs and Gio), and a 2nd round pick from Stemps. I can think of 2 teams last year that had a worse top 9 than that and made the playoffs last year. That lineup would allow us to rebuild like the Sens, load up on some young talent and also give us a ton of flexibility to add a couple good young players through FA to remain competitive.

If we are out of it at the deadline, those would be some moves I would consider making. Maybe tomorrow I'll get crafty and actually list some proposals.
I'd keep Tanguay, I know he plays great with Iggy but we've seen more this year that he can play great with other players like the Czechs. Also, he seems to be really comfortable playing under Hartley (given they won a Stanley cup together and all) so I think he'd be a great guy to keep in a rebuild. I also believe that his value with the Flames is greater than with other teams given that he played really poor in his last 2 outings (MTL and TB). Since we're not doing an oilers type rebuild, it be great to keep some of the core. I agree with your other suggestions, I think I would also throw Cammy in there for a trade if we happen to get a pretty good offer.
