With that said I would want a 1st and a 2nd from a bottom dweller (e.g. Calgary), a first and a good prospect from a middle dweller (e.g. Ottawa), and two 1sts or a first and a great prospect from a contender (e.g. Detroit). Detroit is a team that could be a good fit for Markov, that he would actually waive his NTC for, but I'm not sure what they have.

Gionta, Ryder, Moen, Kaberle, are our only true selling chips now that Bourque is concussed.

At the 2014 deadline we might be looking to sell Josh Gorges if Tinordi and Pateryn keep improving.

You do ? seriously ? no way! Cole would never waive his NTC!

not a single NHL game played yet and in a year we'll be ready to "sell" our 4th D ? come on man, what kind of fantasy world do you live in ? Markov to Calgary, Patteryn / Tinordi to replace Gorges, sell almost every vet while we're pretty much guaranteed a P.O. spot...

wake up dude.
