pure speculation , but IMHO , the pp would do much better and the overall chemistry would be much better.
Without trading:

Straka - Nylander - Jagr
Prucha - Immonen - Shanahan
Krog/Hossa/Ibister - Cullen - Dawes
Hollweg - Betts - Ortmeyer

Krog/Hossa/Ibister/Callahan in the wings

PP1 Straka - Prucha - Jagr - Shanahan - Pock
PP2 Dawes - Krog/Hossa/Ibister - Nylander - Immonen - Rachunek

With trading:
Straka - Nylander - Jagr
Prucha - Forsberg - Shanahan
Krog/Hossa/Ibister - Cullen - Dawes
Hollweg - Betts - Ortmeyer

Brewer - Pock
Ward - Tyutin
Roszival - Rachunek (or Girardi)


Dealt/waived before deadline- Ward, Hall, Orr, Immonen, Jessiman, Lampman, Montoya (ev), Malik & 2 picks for Forsberg, Brewer and ev some lower picks

Krog/Hossa/Ibister/Callahan in the wings

PP1 Straka - Prucha - Jagr - Forsberg - E Brewer
PP2 Dawes - Krog/Hossa/Ibister - Nylander - Shanahan - Pock

Next year
Prucha - Datsyuk - Jagr
Straka - Nylander - Shanahan
M Nilson - Cullen - Dawes
Hollweg - Betts - Ortmeyer

In the wings - Callahan, Dubinsky, Korpikoski, Moore, Anisimov, new 2007 picks...

Hartford/elsewhere: Krog/Hossa/Ibister
PP1 Straka - M Nilsson (as kamikazee in front of net) - Jagr - Datsyuk - E Brewer
PP2 Dawes - Prucha - Nylander - Shanahan - Pock

Brewer - Pock
Ward - Tyutin
Roszival - Staal
Girardi

Eventually they might also consider signing another defensive (max 2 M USD) UFA in the offseason as well to add depth.

In the wings - Baranka, Sanguinetti, M Sauer, Liffiton

Elsewhere: Rachunek

This would be a very very interesting team to follow. Cap space is also viable here as signing 3-4 UFA:s of this caliber are possible while simontaneously easing in the internal talent and oozing out the old mistakes.... If things do not work out and the team does not function (which I doubt exempting injuries) you would have 4 veterans on the top-2 lines (Straka, Shanny, Nylander, Jagr) to trade for younger talent to desperate teams (there are always some teams in trouble) the next 2 years... Also an interesting sceanario (it is usually otherwise the other way around in this organisation) imo

Just some reflections/thoughts
