That's our moveable assets to land something significant that will help our top #6. Now, the question is this... Does Lou want to move young pieces to help our team now or does he stay "status quo" and wait for his kids to grow up and reach their potential?
The point is it takes two teams to make a deal. Two. Not one. Lou cannot unilaterally make trades. Who are you trading for that the cap space is actually going to come into play? I've played with the numbers, it's actually pretty hard to put this team into cap trouble next season. You'd basically have to trade for Vincent Lecavalier and not send any salary back to pull it off.

Go ahead, tell me what deals you're advocating here. Who are you acquiring, and who are you sending to acquire them?
