The compete level on this team is non existent and it ain't even February. Its looking less and less likely that they will make the playoffs, and if they do it'll be a 1st round exit.

MB needs to make some traded to make sure his team next year is better. If you don't trade Markov for the standard prospect + 1st, trade him for a player around 23-26 who will be under contract next season and who is either a D or winger.

Then you have Murray who somehow fetched two 2nds last season, I'm sure he's tradeable for atlesst a pick.

Diaz has some value as a depth PMD. Seems clear he doesn't have a future here, ship him. Even if its a B level prospect...

Gionta clearly has value around the league. Just about every analyst has hinted at him having value. Could definitely fetch a 1st or 2nd and maybe even a prospect.

These are all moves MB must make. Forget this season, look ahead and continue with building this team so we can be competitive in a year or two or three. Losing all these free agents would be a ****ing waste.
