Would also like a RH'er with a good shot to help out on the PP.
I also can't fathom the insane level of Boyle hatred around here. He and Moore are perfect bottom liners who can go up a line and PK, play decently physical. I mean I'm cool with letting Pyatt and some others go... but what's the point in getting rid of our entire bottom 6? Who is replacing them? Same with Dorse really. Keep at least 2 of those 3 around. Veteran guys who can play different needs on the bottom levels. It's not like we have many guys in the system who can replace them. Hrivik? Kantor? Jean? I dunno who's gonna be ready or when, if ever.
I'm not for a full on rebuild, but a mini rebuild...
Of our entire roster, we keep the following players:
* = Maybe/Maybe not...
Business side is bad for Richards, but cutting all veterans is not necessarily a good idea either.
ZUcc small, but good on the right team
Everybody else gets traded at the deadline for youth players (as most of our players are merely playoff rentals)... that means these guys go:
Package these guys properly and we can get some solid youth in return... We won't tank completely, but we won't make the playoffs... starting with a high draft pick next year, AV trades for players he wants for his system, and we chop off several players...
Unfortunately, this means that Lundqvist most likely walks... so then what? Talbot becomes our starter? I'm not sure how I feel about that, but if we do a mini rebuild, it's our only option
