I really think of all of our players Regin is the most expendable and should be part of a package at the deadline. Gotta make room for Silfverberg.
IMO Butler, Regin, maybe Daugavins or even Alfredsson (if Sens will not on PO spot or fight about it) will be traded in February. And in the next season youngscan have a chance. Who? This season and the camp will show.
When I saw your prospects: Filatov, Zibanejad, Puempel, Noesen, Petersson, Silfverberg, Pageau, Prince, Stone... I think that you shouldcreate the second team in Gatineau for them, especially for French or who can speak French.
i think the guys that will be ready or at least ahead of the rest are zibby, silfv, petersson, and da costa.
that's plenty of new forwards to decide on. i don't know how da costa would fit in but the 3 swedes should all be upgrades on similar type players playing now.
filatov and hoffman i don't see having much chance anymore. the other guys will probably look good too but will need more time.
whatever though. the next 2 years will be very fun to watch.
