Ryan Smyth was a top line goal scorer in 2007. Not even close to being one of the best, he was just a good top-3 goal scorer.

Everyone knew he had no desire to stay on the East Coast, yet still, Snow had to pay Edmonton a steep price for a month or two of play.

Granted, OMarra, Plante and Nillson all stink/stunk, but at the time it was akin to us trading Miller, McIlrath and a 2014 1st rounder to Buffalo for Moulson.

Callahan is an Olympian. Nuff said. He will return pretty close to what Smyth netted -- Two prospects and a 1st rounder

Girardi did us all a favor by having a great game on national TV. There are teams right now where he would step in and be an immediate No. 1/top-pairing guy.

Two prospects and a 1st rounder.

Del Zotto is a former blue chip who may not fetch a whole lot. Maybe underachiever for underachiever straight up (Del Zotto for Schroeder, Del Zotto for Rundblad, Del Zotto for Kulikov along those lines)

Sather needs to get into Chiarelli/Bowman mode. Identify your untradables. Then make moves.

Right now, it should be Lundqvist, Kreider, Stepan, McDonagh...maybe Hagelin, maybe Miller. I would say Zuccarello too, for now.

Everybody else should be on notice.
