If they're still at the bottom of the Western Conference in two weeks:

-Trade Bulin, Whitney, Sutton for whatever you can get in return

-Try to reink Jones, Smid, Fistric but if you can't ship them out as well

-Realize that in order of trade value Yakupov, Hemsky and MPS are your top trade chips. Personally I'd trade Hemsky prior to the deadline to the highest bidder because of his age, trade value and cap hit

-Head into the off-season with lots of cap space and picks/prospects with a focus on improving the blueline. The dream can be to acquire a top end defender like OEL but more realistically I see targeting a very good defender like Johnson/Tyutin

-Plus target another guy who needs a change of scenery who only has 1 or 2 years but is overpaid on his deal but won't cost a lot to acquire like a Ballard or Martin
