If we get rid of Kovalev, Samsonov, Bouillon and Souray's (eventual) contract, we can work on surrounding Koivu.

Kovalev: 2nd rounder
Samsonov: a puck
Souray: Bernier? Penner?
Bouillon: 4th rounder

This kind of return won't be enough to rebuild immediately... we'll have to hope Kostytsin and Grabovski can step in immediately and that Komi / Higgins continue to progress.

Sign a guy like Berard to replace Souray

Sign a big centre or big winger to support Koivu.
