Desharnais for a 2nd and 5th.
Those seem like pretty reasonable deadline deals. If Gaustad got a 1st a few years back then so can Gionta and Leblanc.
Better players have gone for less.
If the team is in the hunt for the playoffs, then none of those players will be dealt.
If we're out of the playoffs, Gionta, if he waives, might get us a 2nd. I'd be shocked if he got us a first unless there's no one else available.
Moen, given how much is left won't be dealt, or sought after.
Desharnais likely won't be sought after either.
If we're willing to deal Leblanc, it means he struggled again and would carry very little value.
