Sell the veterans for what you can at the deadline and give the young guys plenty of ice-time/power play time the rest of the year. Have Gustafsson play quality minutes to see what he can do over the course of a couple weeks.

In Free Agency, don't make any panic moves and lock up any one long term unless it makes a lot of sense. I am a huge fan of Perry but don't think he's worth the cap hit when Giroux/Schenn/Couturier/Read need new deals. Next year is a great free agent class so Holmgren can spend then when the team is ready for a deep run. Go after Jimmy Howard or trade for Bernier.

Still very excited about the young core of this team and think they have a great chance at the playoffs next year. They are still a 2-3 years away from competing for a cup but have a better arsenal of talent than most teams around the league.
