Gotta stop worrying about how we stack up against the teams in the West. Hell, we barely need to worry about how we stack up against teams in the Atlantic right now. More important is how we stack up against the Jackets, Hurricanes, Flyers, or Devils. Those are the most likely teams for us to play in the 1st round.

Trading all of Pouliot, Moore, Boyle, and Carcillo would do awful things to this team. Yeah, I know we have some promising players in the pipeline that might be able to fill those roles. But then, what happens if we get injuries? The 3rd, 4th, 5th round picks we will get are simply not worth it. As I said in the last thread, maybe you trade one of Boyle or Moore, as those two guys fill the same basic role.

As for Stralman... it's a different story. Same story with Girardi. Same with Callahan. These are players that might be able to bring back significant value. But, truth told, I wouldn't have any problem keeping Stralman at the risk of losing him in the offseason. We finally have a balanced D group. Let's keep it that way. Girardi and Callahan have too large of a potential return to ignore.
