Idk about that. Schenn is still very young and has taken a step forward from his play the last couple seasons in Toronto. He's a good piece to hold onto and add to. Grossmann is a solid top 4 defenseman if you have complimentary pieces that can move the puck for them on their pairings, they'd be fine pieces on our defense... The problem is we don't have those pieces.

Coburns offensive game is now nonexistent, Timonen is 38 years old and slowing down completely, and Meszaros is so broken that he can't even get his head in the game enough to fix his awful play. Gervais is a 7th defenseman at best, Foster should not be in the NHL, and Gustafsson is too weak both physically and on the puck to be effective at this level... I think both Schenn and Grossmann are keepers, get the rest of them out of here and rebuild the D.

Trade Couturier and a 2nd for Gormley and a 1st. Trade Coburn for a 1st, play gus and manning and tank for jones, then buyout Meszaros.
Draft jones, Another defenseman (Nurse, Pulock, Zadorov etc.) and a winger (anthony mantha?)

Timonen-Jones
Gormley-Grossmann
Schenn-UFA (smid?)
