I also think Joe needs to open the line when it comes to other vets like Morrow, Ryder, Robidas, and possibly Jagr depending on where we're at come deadline.
Out of all those, Loui would bring the highest return.
You have to keep some vets, but you also have to explore all options and flip assets in to assets.
What GMJN needs to demonstrate first is that when the time comes, he isn't afraid to deal his own assets away i.e.,
the assets HE had a role bringing in to this organization.
IMO, he should not be allowed to touch any of Eriksson, Benn, Larsen, etc., (and might I say on principle, not even Morrow or Robidas) before he demonstrates he will move the players he brought in, like Goligoski, Roy, Jagr, Ryder, Whitney, etc. for the betterment of the team.
