Trading Ryan for one top pairing dman is the priority.
Souray has better offensive instincts than Allen (by about 1000%) but he seems unable to skate, he couldn't get a shot through from the point the last part of the year (as the Dallas posters said would happen) and was causing turnovers by a failure to react to pucks that were his responsibility late in the year and in the playoffs. I think the team needs one of the two on the 3rd pairing, not both. Allen was the 4/5 I think they thought they were getting by the end of the year. Souray might be better than him in that role but Allen was a MUCH faster skater than Souray by the end of the season.

I think Lovejoy is a great #6, not sure what the dislike is. I also think Lydman is a far better defensive defenseman than anyone on the team but Beauchemin, especially when played on the left where he belongs. There's hoody on the team to replace him right now.
