If you were an NHL free agent where would you go for the same money? Detroit, Pittsburg, Boston, etc. or Florida, Edmonton, NYI?

I am not against trading away some of our players (Kuba, Santo, Kovalev, some others), but I am against trading away most of our players and blowing up the roster just for a couple draft picks.
Where did I say that we're more attractive a club than those? And who did we sign a couple years ago that were top free agents? Flash was the top guy to sign here, and he had health issues. We didn't sign a top teir guy.

And no one is suggesting we blow up the team, but there are players are who aren't working, or who aren't quite fitting the mold Tallon wants, I'd guess, that can be moved. Extea picks can also be used in trades as well.
