A little too much.

Halak: might one day be a great NHL goalie
Kosts: lots of offensive potential (starting to bloom at 21...)
Ryder: one-dimensional 30 goal scorer, but still...it's 30 goals! great chemistry with Koivu/Higgins, etc...
O'Byrne: could end up being a bigger/taller RIVET. Or something close (hopefully!) to Komisarek (or poor man's version of it!).

I'd give Ryder, O'Byrne, Niinimaa (would they want him?), and a 1st rounder FOR...
Jokinen.
Perhaps. Still we have Price coming up before too long, so I would move Halak. Kosts has been doing well this season and I'm now higher on him than I was a year ago. Ryder is just too inconsistent for me and Jokinen looks good for 30 goals a season these days. Ummm, O' Byrne? I had Milroy in my head when I was typing/reading. Still though, that's a lot of players who have yet to prove themselves for a guy who's more proven.

Maybe they'll take Niinimaa, Samsonov, Aebischer and a 1st rounder for Jokinen and Bouwmeester.
