Nugent Hopkins and Hall are the franchise IMO. I think you probably keep Eberle too, I don't think you gut your entire RW.
They are already half way to Ekblad. Yakupov is probably the one who's dealt. Gagner is a goner too.
Hemsky is gone anyway (good for him, he deserves to go somewhere better after years here).
