Not advocating any specific trades, signings, re-signings, etc. This is just how I feel about this team at this point:

McDonagh: best player on the team
Girardi: I'll always be attached to G but he hasn't been great and is going to get an unsightly payday
Stall: feel bad for him but hasn't been himself since the injuries and no longer looks better than a #4
MDZ: has been mishandled but also drives me nuts and has no future here any more
Moore: tools with no toolbox and more of a #7 than #6
Stralman: solid bottom pair guy who can fill in higher but shouldn't be relied on
Falk: might as we'll be Bickel

Callahan: never loved his leadership style but love his game. Shouldn't be relied on as a top threat. He's a middle-six guy who is going to get overpaid
Zuccarello: made a believer out of me and is out best forward with an engine that never stops
Kreider: looks like he's becoming a solid second liner but I don't think he'll ever be a legit top notch talent like we need
Richards: better this year than expected but not good and will be bought out
Stepan: he's a #2 center whose having a mediocre year
Brassard: wasted potential who really brings very little 90% of the time
Pouliot: ditto Brassard
Hamelin: a lot like Callahan a good utility guy who can play second line but is ideally a third liner
Nash: I hate this guy more than most NHLers. He's such a gutless player and I never wanted him. Has always been overrated
Dorsett: fine fourth liner
Boyle: frustrating because he's given chances he shouldn't be given and once made us think he could score, but a fine fourth liner
Moore: an okay fourth liner
Asham: retire
Miller: looks like he should be a Dubinsky-esque player eventually. Middle six type player

Lundqvist: will always love the King but he's been a big disappointment this year. Also not getting support but he's not up to snuff
Talbot: pleasant surprise but the team should play as hard in front of the guy they owe it to and not just the new kid

AV: hate this clown. He's awful. He doesn't coach

That said, McDonagh is the only player on this team I absolutely wouldn't move. There's literally nothing special on this roster anywhere right now besides Hank and McD and Hank isn't playing like anything special. He's earned a season pass. We suck. We should be a lottery team. We should have been a lottery team several times during Hank's time here. We're terrible. Mediocre or worse everywhere.
