After that trade Nylander, Malik, Hall, and A.Ward.
Thing is, if you trade all those guys then you trade Shanahan too. If you deal all of them off, you're telling the world that you're surrendering inthe short term (for at least a couple of years). Would Shanahan have any interest in signing on with a rebuilding team? I doubt it. So if Jagr, Nylander, and Ward go, Shanny pretty much has to go too - unless you're content to see him walk away for nothing.

Jagr's pretty cheap and if you're willing to take back, say, $2.5M in salary in the deal, he gets within the range of most of the teams that would want him.
