Yup. Obviously the next couple weeks will determine what Gillis does, but if we are out of it, I would like to see him sell off some players for picks/prospects. As we have seen with the Getzlaf and Perry contracts, the league is moving in a direction which is going to be top heavy on the first couple lines and then not much depth after that. Getting young players on ELCs becomes even more important now. Hope the Luongo/Schnieder trade gets us a couple good ones.
