Depends on what teams are interested, I guess. Some of those other players came with some pretty big contracts, or conversely impending free agency attached. Neal wasn't quite so established yet, but we thought it was a terrible trade even so.

Kane at a modest $5.25M and term, I could see him getting interest. Winnipeg's D with a couple big guys out may look bad atm, but they are nominally pretty much set there, and so what else do they need? A goalie? Some more big fast scoring forwards like Kane? Hm.

Well, offer them Fucale, and a few other of our best futures assets, I guess. But if some other team with a more blue-chip further-along goalie showed up? Or some other bigger-name prospect in general? I don't feel like we're in good shape with who, Beaulieu to offer?

They'll fire Noel and see how Kane plays under the new coach first, anyway.
