Bourque is sign till 2017 and I don't think he will be the superstar. Diaz is good but he won't be here for long enough. We need a playoff push trade without taking too much of our future (wich louis leblanc is no longer a key part) to give the experience to our young core.

you guys dream for a Clarkson Clowe or even an upgrade where the cup windows contending is not yet open and you can sign them in the summer ... we still have 1 year before pretending to be near.

Having that said you need to chek foward the future to see a trade reasoning :

Pacioretty DD Gallagher
++++ Plekanec Gionta
Galchenyuk Eller ++++
Prust Dumont Talbot

Subban Gorges
Markov Emelin
Bouillon Tinordi
Gervais +++++


players to go : Halpern Ryder Amstrong White, Kaberle(Buy out) Weber, Budaj

We cand bring Tokarski and give him a back up spot chance. Markov and Gionta will be in final year contract so their spot will also be in limbo for a rookie like Ellis, Beaulieu, Collberg, Bournival, etc.

This summer we will have to make decision mainly on 1 left winger, 1 right winger and a right d-man with a 6,811 projected free cap if we put another 1.983 + 4.250 (kaberle) we will have 13.044 for those 3 spot and 2 rfa (Dumont and Tokarski : at approxmimatly 1,3 cost) wich mean 11,744 for a top 6 left wing, a top nine right wing and a number 7-8 d-man.

So let's play a projection game for next year then :

Dumont receive 0.600 for 2 years
Tokarski receive 0.700 for 2 years

We sign :
Chris Higgins 2.250 2 years
David Clarkson 4.250 for 4 years
Mike Lundin 0.750 for 1 year

so we pay 1.3 (rfa) + 7.250 (ufa) to have a final 3.194 cap space on the cap hit

Pacioretty DD Gallagher
Higgins Plekanec Clarkson
Galchenyuk Eller Gionta
then in 2014 we all hope a Collberg instead of Gionta
Prust Dumont Talbot

Subban Gorges
Markov Emelin
Bouillon Tinordi
Gervais Lundin
