Let Nylander walk as Staka can move to Center while Prucha moves up to wing with Rosie and Malik on defence giving Jagr his Czech line.
Retain Shanny and bring in a quick, pass first center to play with him (Conroy is cheap and is a great setup man, penalty killer. Throw a defensive compliment like Sturm and you have a gritty fast, defensivly responsible 2nd line. If Conroy is on the team he is a year in year out Selke canidate, throw Dawes on the line instead.
Then address the real problem, defense.
Cant let Nylander go as long as Jagr is here, he has proven much more effective at center than Straka. Dont know if its worth taking on Conroys salary for what he is at this point, but then again I havent seen him play regularly in a while.
