You might not even need to sacrafice that much either. Take Lecavalier for example (an example): yes, you'd lose some if not alot of youth, but he's still signed for a couple years and odds are he'd resign here. Add a rental D and you've got yourself a strong contender, possibly for a few years!

Ryder + Plekanec/Kost +1st for Lecavalier. Dump Niinimaa/Samasonov to clear cap space.
Yes, I feel adding a really good center would make us a good contender. But you're not gonna get a Vincent Lecavalier for an underperforming goal scorer, a decent prospect, and a first round pick.

And yes, I realize stuff happens. Like the Thornton trade. But it's not realistic to say just do that and we'll be a contender. That stuff doesn't happen often, and shouldn't at all.
