I wanted to trade Jagr the year before he walked. I would trade both Callahan and Girardi if they didn't re-sign by the deadline. Stralman, Pouliot, Pyatt, Boyle, Moore all would be available for the right price at the deadline.

Losing assets for nothing is a great way to run an organization into the ground.
