Salvador on the other hand probably could be moved, the FA pool on defence isn't too spectacular, i'm sure someone would bite for a late round pick, maybe if we retain 1M or something? Either that or trade him for an overpaid/underachieving forward of similar or less value with equal or less years remaining.

Give Volchenkov another year and see if his play improves, if not compliance him next off-season. He's got no excuses, especially with what should be massively improved goaltending.

I'd be happy enough with:

Tallinder - Larsson
Greene - Fayne
Free Agent / Prospect - Volchenkov
Harrold

Give Urbom/Gelinas a chance or see if Zidlicky or someone will re-sign on the cheap.
This is my ideal situation too, although you've still got a major log-jam down the line.
