Khabby to Jets for 4th rder. Pavelec is very up and down and may benefit from a more seasoned vet as his backup than current one (Montoya). Fans in the Peg will like it for nostalgic reasons.

Belanger to VAN/ANH/MON for a 4th. All teams that are very weak on the dot and killing penalties (Anaheim in particular).

Not sure if there'd be any interest in Petrell/Jones/Peckham/Potter but I would take whatever I could get for them. Fast forward to the off-season and I'd tell Smitty he's either retiring or being bought out, his choice.

The mainstays would look like this, with much of the lineup to be filled via trade/UFA

Hall-RNH-Ebs
Paajarvi-Gagner-Yak
???-Horc-???
Harti-???-Brown

???-???
Smid-JSchultz
Fistric-Klefbom

Petry and NSchultz must go in deals for an upgrade in order to build a proper top pair.
So your basically giving away our second best winger this year and replacing him with nothing for next season, how's this make us better next year? Hemsky has another year on his deal, if he's dealt it'll be a hockey trade for a top 4 d man or someone who is very close to being a top 4 d man. Maybe a Roman Polak type D with a pick, or maybe to Nashville for Kevin Klein or Roman Josi. I Also don't think Smid is back next year so we could probably deal him for a 1st, and Whitney should be able to land us a 2nd by himself or a b level prospect.
