I say Gilbert. He's going to be waived and only has 1 year left on his deal, so even though he's going to make $4m this year, we won't be on the hook for anything in the future if we claim him. I think if he makes it to FA he might be able to use the market to his advantage and get something like a 3 year deal at 2.5-3 million, which I wouldn't want to do.

He's a good skater and has been a top 4 guy most of his career. Also, he was our draft pick and we never should have traded him in the first place (he was who we used to get Tommy freakin Salo).

Wilson - Johnson
Gilbert/Hejda - Barrie
Gilbert/Hejda - Elliott/Sarich/Hunwick

That's passable. Not good, but certainly better than having guys like Hunwick, O'Bryne, etc in top 4 roles.
