With Gionta maybe we just have to wait it out. Hes a health question mark so his trade value is too low. And he's also a pretty respected captain of a team that has some of the best chemistry in the league last year. Still, the three tiny forwards in the top nine is a problem. Gallagher should be the only one with a future here in the top six and that will look better when Giontas deal ends and be gets a handshake and a thanks but no thanks. The problem is our saviour GM for some reason gave a long deal to a soft unproven forward after one good season. This team gave Koivu one year deals but gives Desharnais term. He should have gotten one year, 2-2.5. Where was the hardball like he played with Subban?

Anyways for next year the team will have the smallest RW in the NHL but should be productive until they crumble in the playoffs under injuries, physical play from normal sized players.

Bourque - Plekanec - Gionta
Pacioretty - Eller - Deshanrnais
Prust - Galchenyuk - Gallagher

... is a lineup full of talented players but going nowhere until those 1st and 2nd RW are nasty, fast, physical players.
