Jettison BR and let that be the big "splash" we make on the market. Ever.
I am still on board with re-signing Clowe (if it is on decent terms). Also, it's hard to sign some of these "depth" players when the top pieces are still missing.

Exactly.

But if they're going to do that, they better not reach into attempting to replace him with a #1 center that just doesnt seem to be on the market.
Agree. They have to be patient and find the RIGHT player(s). A defenseman would be nice who can skate and help the PP. Streit maybe on a shorter deal as a bottom-pairing guy?
