I'm not sure why everybody hates Purcells contract, you get a first line winger who is near a PPG rate. If he can play like last year again (another coach could really help him) , he is worth any Dollar of his contract. But I would be okay with retaining some salary.
No hate on the contract, but we are in a sticky cap situation when the cap goes down, so we would have to throw some salary your way to make it work.

I don't know, we don't need Weaver, Garrison has been fine.

Majority of his success last year came from line combos that did not have Stamkos-St. Louis.

Well to be honest I don't believe in the benefiting from linemates thing. I have read all these things on this board:
Stamkos is only that good because of MSL
Purcell is only that good because of Stamkos and MSL
Conacher is so good because of Lecavalier, MSL, Purcell and Stamkos
MSL benefits from Stamkos firing his passes in the net

Tampa has NO lines, they change them frequently (sometimes multiple times per game), so you see this argument is irrelevant. Tampa has a great offense, from top to bottom, and we even play thompson ( a 4th line center) alongside Stamkos from time to time.

I'm okay with Ballard +X, but Purcell is worth WAY more than an injury prone 3-5th D with a way to big paycheck.
What about Ballard and Tanev for Purcell and Lee? Maybe would add a low pick if needed.

What about Luongo for Lecavaliers in a one-for-one swap?

lol no he's not. Being a bad team doesn't mean you sell everyone. Ott was brought in as part of a culture change, and we gave up a good top 6 center to get him. It would be retardedly horrible asset management to turn around and flip the guy for an even lesser asset (ie: late 1st, which i the offer you're going to get from contenders).

Yeah, that whole culture change argument sure was a winner. Real culture change when he skated away from Simmonds after Ennis got borded. If you can manage to get a late 1st for Ott, you had better do it.

Buffalo fans should nope right out of this thread. Why would we sell low on Ott and deal him for Van's spare parts?

Would Buffalo fans be open to an Edler for Meyers swap?

Oh, good! One example. He's the runaway leader on Buffalo in hits, is our only decent faceoff guy, and, in my estimation, a player Buffalo will keep/try to extend while rebuilding to have as a solid veteran support player.
Not to mention, if Regier wouldn't move impending UFA Gaustad for less than a 1st, there's absolutely no way he's moving Ott at that price. Ott is clearly more valuable than Gaustad.

Better offensively, more physical, better agitator, almost as good at faceoffs, signed an additional year compared to Goose at the time of the trade.

Gaustad is better defensively, almost as good offensively, bigger, much better at faceoffs, just as physical.

No you don't other teams would out bid you . Plus no one wants Lou with his contract length . If he retires early as expected the team is left with a cap hit . = keep him

Absolutely not. Not even close, actually.
Ott - 115 hits this season (26 GP), good for 2nd in the NHL
Gaustad -- 33 hits (18 GP), 4th on his own team
