Grossmann-Gus
Gervais

If someone makes you a ridiculous offer for Coburn, think about it. Don't just trade him to trade him because he is an important part of the defense, despite what some HFB scouts would have you believe. Other than that, just sit back and hope Gus develops into a top four defender. If someone goes down for a short while in the top six, throw Gervais into the lineup. If someone in the top four goes down for a significant period, look to make a deal.
I'm a fan of a Mez for Diaz trade. Saves 2.8 in cap space. Gives us 7 NHL d-man...then Gervais. We all know there will be at least one injury so having 7 + Gervais will be needed. I would also look to add Blum at $750,000...and send Gervais packing too.
