Let's see if Elisha Cuthbert can do what Maripier Morin did with Prust and try to bring Phaneuf in her hometown.
Girardi would be a good solution for our top 4 too.
I tend to agree with the idea of trading Gorges. At 3.9m, he's a good value, but not on our team. I think he makes for a very decent 4th d-man on a mid-level team. If we want to win a cup, I think he'd be more like a 5-6 on our team, and at 3.9m he's too expensive to be holding down that role.
So we should try to trade him to a team like say the Devils or Sabres, who are in need of stability on D, but who aren't in serious contention for a cup any time soon. That will free up enough cash for us to get a serious top 4 d-man i suspect.
I don't really want to trade Gorges per say, but I feel like down the road this is the kind of trade you need to make to get to the next level.
