Hainsey for the 1st I'd do.

Antro I'd trade if a 2nd or 3rd was coming back but otherwise he is making our team better, I'd resign him if we can't get a pick in the top 3 rounds for him.

I was in the Semin value thread in the trade rumour forums, I'd prefer to take a swing at the fences UFA than trade away Buff just because Trouba is looking good in college.

IMO Buff + overpaid but top liner in Semin > Voracek, Gervais and the pick with a UFA defense signing.

Then there's that whole ROR thing lol
Ya, I'm not sure what Philly would give up to get Buff, and whether the Jets are even interested in moving him or like the players I've mentioned.

Voracek has played well and is a young player. Need to give to get holmgren. I like the fact he fills that top 6 RW spot - and gives some cap flexibility to not re-sign Antro. Also like his friendship with Pavs. May help him.
Gervais simply fills a d spot open if Buff is moved. The 1st might be a bit much, and I'd be ok with adding a mid-rd pick.

Not sure what Hainsey's value is. Plays big mins, in all situations, but isn't physical and is a rental. His first pass out of the zone (unlike his d-partner bogo) is nightmare-ish at times. A 2nd and 3rd might be it - but, if a team is desperate, then I suggest the Jets hold out for a 1st. I'd also throw a later rd (5th) pick back, to secure the 1st THIS year.
