Here's my overhaul:

NEW COACH. NEW GM.

- Bruno Gervais (get him out of here)
- Kurtis Foster
- Michael Leighton
- Brian Boucher
- Ruslan Fedotenko
- Danny Briere (buy-out or trade, I don't care)
- Andrej Meszaros (he must have SOME trade value)

+ re-sign Gagne ($3mil max?)
+ Brian Campbell (trade... maybe they retain some cap and we take all the salary)
+ Ben Bishop (trade, nothing major but like Bobrovsky value I'd do it no question)
+ 2013 1st rounder used on a defender (Jones (if it gets that bad...)/Ristolainen/Nurse/Pulock/Zadorov)
+ 4th line C (Boyd Gordon?)
+ another top-6/top-9 forward.

---

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
Read/xxx - Schenn - Simmonds
Gagne - Couturier - Read/xxx
Rinaldo - xxx - Talbot

Campbell - Schenn
Timonen - Coburn
Grossmann - xxx

Bryzgalov
Bishop


I honestly have no idea how those trades would work out but I pick Campbell because I think he'd be the 'cheapest' option as in it wouldn't result in us having to give up Couturier/Schenn/Read/etc. If I had to give up anybody, I'd give up Matt Read. Couturier doesn't move despite his sophomore struggles. I think we can get some value for Briere, and hopefully he'll waive. Give Luke Schenn 2nd unit PP time. As weird as that sounds.

The xxx's are really just filler, and I'm sure we can find better players to use as filler than Fedotenko and Gervais.

EDIT: I don't have guys like Gustafsson, Laughton, McGinn and all those guys up here because unless they earn a spot this season I would rather be patient with them.
