Try to trade Moen as well, see out West if a team is interested

Bring in a tough SOB defenseman
All Free Agents can be negotiated with from the 25th of June or the day after the Entry Draft until June 30th.

So, not only does it mean absolutely nothing for us to obtain him beforehand, we would be giving them a 25g+ winger who happens to be our captain AND limit our cap by 1-1.5mil. Unless they're RFAs there's no point in trading for free agents. Gionta may be small and his cap hit bad but he's still worth more than a little more negotiating time with a guy who will be way overpaid and may not even sign with the team.
