They are not going to give you a lot for Jagr and Shanahan. Maybe some cheap prospects. No team gives up their top prospects.
We should not do it either but they are talking about finishing dead last. When Shanahan and Jagr retire in two years then hope the guys in Hartford will be ready.
A team that is very close to the cup that needs that one last piece will give up top young assets. The 92-93 and 93-94 Rangers did it over the span of 2 seasons to lock up the cup.

So what are they going to do, throw all of these guys out there at one time so that they can lose every damn game because they all have little or no experience at all? What this team has to do is start phasing guys into the lineup. Not a complete firesale, but keep some of the guys around.
