Why not trade Plekanec while his value is high? Why not trade big assets for impact players or prospects? I'm not necessarily talking about tanking, that's miserable, I'm talking about shedding excess fat off the roster and improving key positions for the future. Why not strive for a dynasty?

*** Trading Plekanec is just a drastic option.
*** I don't mean trade all these players all at once.

Players/positions we can improve or trade for value in packages:
Plekanec/DD
Gorges
Emelin/Diaz
Gionta/Markov
Moen
D-prospects

Players to target:
@Frozenice- Murray
Terravainen
Yakupov
Demers
Niederreiter
Burmistrov
Myers
2013 Top-5

These are all potential pick-ups from teams that need assets that we have or have been rumoured to be available, all with varying degrees of usefulness. All have huge upside. There's risk involved.


There's nothing on your list of tradeable assets, I'd want for 20 yr old Nino.

While the isles do need a 1st line rw for Tavares (Boyes is too soft), their 2nd line was strong in the last 20 games of 2011-2012 and has been their best line for the last 5 weeks.I doubt they break up that Bailey-Nielsen-Okposo line.

Moulson-Tavares-???
Bailey-Nielsen-Okposo
