Trade now and get a good return, AND save us from losing a few other good players down the road.
Really...earlier rather than later?????

There will be no expansion next season and likely not the following. They would have to announce expansion teams this summer to get them ready for the 2014-15 season. I haven't heard anything indicating potential teams making official presentations to the BoG or even calls for presentations to be made. The earliest expansion happens is likely for the 2015-16 season, after the league has dealt with the problem teams (FLA, PHX, etc).

I'm pretty sure the Sens will have figured out what to do with the goalies by then. No need to do anything sooner than later with regards to expansion drafts.
