The fact that Tinordi and Bournival are still there doesn't mean they can't be sent down in a week once everybody is healthy.

With Murray and Parros healthy, that gives us

Biere DD Pacioretty Plekanec Gionta Bourque Galchenyuk Gallagher Eller Moen Prust White Parros Bournival(14 forwards)

Subban Markov Tinordi Murray Bouillon Diaz Gorges(7 defense)

Drewiske out another 2-3 weeks.

I wouldn't trade anybody, I'd keep those guys around for 7-8 games until Drewiske is healthy and Parros is 100%...then send one or two guys down.

Three concepts at play here...

1-it's better to be too patient than to rush young players, plus
2-they are better off playing more in the AHL than sitting in the NHL
3-you never have too much depth

It would make no sense to trade White, he is cheap, has looked good in preseason and adds an element of tougness plus can play C or RW. Good team guy.

Moen, yeah he had a down year plus his contract makes him hard to trade. Give him at least a half year to bounce back, in preseason he's been more agressive and dropped the gloves, he can be a high end 4th liner(see 11-12).

Parros or Prust are going nowhere.

Logically Bournival stays a few weeks and unless he is a force they send him back down.

Tinordi is a tougher call, once Murray and Drewiske are healthy, they can't carry 24 and won't want 8 d-men. Drewiske is a no brainer at #7. Murray they won't move so soon after signing him, plus he brings big time size/toughness with Emelin out. Bouillon was just re-signed and is the more versatile player of the bottom 4 guys. Can they send Drewiske AHL for 2 weeks conditionning?
