If and when they start scoring, that can only mean they will continue to move up in the standings.

I'd be trying to get rid of guys that have no real future here and guys that may not turn out that great like we thought. Guys like Whitney, one of Paajarvi or Harti and I hate to say it but I think Petry should go.

If they want to get really ballsy about moving forward, package one or two of those guys with next years first round pick. We should be able to get some size with a package like that, without sacrificing the current core of the team.
I'm not really sure why, there's no sense on making random moves just for the sake of making news. Of course, Whitney is gone. Paajarvi and Harti? They're both showing improvement this season and are two bright spots on the roster - they are also two of the few forwards we have that are over 6 feet tall. Petry, again, I'm not sure why. Our D core is mediocre, why trade a good second pairing guy?

If we want to fill holes, it'll be Hemsky, Yak, Eberle on the way out.
