The defense rebuilding is going to be a hell of a challenge. It has to be done and I nervously await Holmgren's solution. I can envision the long term 5m+ deal going to Orpik now and the quotes of his Olympian resume and how much Homer likes the team.

Appleyard has basically outlined the best case scenario. There are basically 4-5 guys on the market, trade or FA, and they all are going to be in high demand. Any FA option is going to have an unsexy contract.

Our best option is to package the Schenns and pry away the best defensemen available. It's not a popular opinion but I do think they hold some value and are relatively expendable.

Best case scenario?:

Edler-Coburn
Streit-Girardi
Grossmann-Gustafsson/Meszaros
