He seemed to be a good penalty killer, energy type guy but there is only a small sample size to monitor and Taylor Pyatt struggled some in the regular season. I thought he was one of the better players in the playoffs. Besides all that, the cap hit for all three is is around 3.6 - 3.7 million - for all three players. And finally, they are all off the books in 2014-15. Just my humble opinion. If you trade them, you are likely signing players to more expensive, longer deals.
Trade them and replace them from within. Maybe get 1 UFA who you think fits the system and that's it.
