Not sure that we'll find a taker, though the bigger issue might end up being the NTC.

I could see a deal with SJ working out for both teams...

To SJ
Cole
Kaberle

To Mtl
Havlat
Murray

cole/havlat are a wash, with Havlat being 500K more/season... I think he'd do very well on Plekanec's wing, finally giving him a player with the vision/style to complement him skill-wise.

Murray would be 7th dman for us, but a nice insurance policy if injuries pop up (and perhaps making it easier for MT to give Markov the occasional game off to help rest his knee?)

SJ would probably scoff at the idea of taking back two contracts that will be on the books next year, so maybe we add a late pick or a depth prospect?
You're not getting Havlat from SJS for Cole, I'm sorry, but no. They're my two favourite teams and I'd hate this. If anything I'd like something along the lines of Gionta for Clowe. Both are performing HORRIBLY, yet both are arguably top 6 talents who *should* satisfy needs of both teams.
