We're definitely still pretty high on Boedker and will resign him, he and Vrbata are our most talented scoring wingers. As for D, Klesla is most likely to get traded, though Michalek could also be made available as his $4M salary for what he does is just too much for a $50M budget team. Very unlikely we'll move both off-season though, esp. since we'll likely have a different goaltending tandem in net and getting too young too soon on the blueline could be a recipe for disaster.

Needs are pretty similar to yours: skilled forwards. Necessity dictates that we try to go after those that are young and cost-controlled; at least you guys can afford to spend a bit more than $50 million. :-)

What about spaling and a pick for klesla then?
Other than that, don't think we make good partners bro.
