Marian Gaborik- Trade, he will cash in with a big cap hit, and has mailed in two seasons. Return can fill holes on team, sustain core. Absolutely trade. He gets fresh start, and hype, cashes in for rest of NHL career.
Taylor Pyatt- Trade, no pk, and low value 5 on 5 minutes, no block shots or grit. Rid.
Brad Richards- one more year to see, with him and Torts tied at the hip.
Steve Eminger- Trade. Like him, but when a good play is also a surprising one, then your skating on thin ice. Need better skater/athlete in that role. McIlrath hopefully, or a righty D that can take some physical pressure off G.
Matt Gilroy- Minor league callup. This is the injury fill in. Mentally soft, and will cave against tight checking, but can spell minutes for depth. Choose him over Emmy cause of skating ability, and played very solid when matched up.
Anton Stralman- Trade if upgrade is available. Can't play elevated minutes every night, but is valuable in insulated role. If top 4 offensive RHD is acquired, I would trade and fill the spot with a bruising RHD.
Martin Biron- Keep. Looks older this year, but candidates for back ups will cost money or uncertainty. Gets along with Hank, but if a cheap lateral move can be made, then pull the trigger. Talbot is an NHL style goaltender, Missien is huge, but more experience is needed at that spot. More athletic veteran, that Hank can chill with otherwise keep.
Gaborik has mailed in 2 seasons? He was hurt for about 20 games one season and still put up 50 points. The other 2 seasons? 86 points and 76 points, almost 2 ppg seasons, yeah.. really mailed those in.
