There's ways of doing, but those ways mean moving guys some here want to hold onto dearly for some very odd reasons.
Wish we could have moved MDZ for RO'R when we had the chance.
Bigger, stronger, faster and more talented 3rd line center for Hags and Cally.
here's what I would want to do.
I would look to trade the following players:
Pyatt, Powe, Boyle, Asham and Staal.
I would use the final compliance buyout on Richards this summer.
I would resign Clowe to a 3 year deal at 4 million per
Resign Stepan for his 2 year Bridge deal at 3.75 per
Resign McD long term for 4.25 per.
Sign Raffi Torres to a 3 year deal at 2.25 per
Sign Nathan Horton for 4 years at 5.5 per.
Promote to the big club Fasth, Lindberg, Newbury and Miller for the forwards and Dylan McIlrath for defence.
Below is what the team would look like. Below that is what my lines would look like.

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $62,447,500; BONUSES: $2,250,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $4,102,500
Kredier - Stepan - Nash
Clowe - Brassard - Horton
Hagelin - Miller - Callahan
Torres - Newbury - Dorsett
xtra forwards - Lindberg and Fast
McDonagh - Girardi
Del Zotto - Moore
Eminger - Stralman
xtra Defence - McIlrath
That would be a nice team to watch for 82 games plus playoffs
if we got Horton, we def wouldn't waste money on Clowe and surely not Torres. If we sign Horton, someone gets pushed down to the 3rd line..
