Gionta, a perennial 25+ goal scorer who is good at both ends of the ice isn't worth a 2nd round pick? Do people really believe this? His contract is not that bad considering what he brings to the table, but he is overpaid (who isn't once the sign a UFA deal).

Cammy will get you at least a 1st round pick (probably add a decent prospect). This isn't the real cammy and GM's of other teams know it.

I get trading one of them (i'd rather trade cammy), but there are no guarantees that this team can sign or draft a replacement for next season. If Gionta and Cammy are both traded, it means the team is rebuilding for at least this season and the next. Not sure I think that's necessary.

The part a lot of people are missing is that if you dump all these veterans...

Cammy, Gio, Gomez, Markov, Kaberle etc

Yeah it would clear cap room but if you fill their spot with another UFA chances are that player will also be overpaid. Gomez is the only one that definitely needs to get moved(trade, AHL, Europe) by September.

Gill Moen AK Gorges

Gill it's time to move on, I think if we are to re sign Gorges then you let Gill walk and go with Gorges and Emelin as your main stay at home types. Moen ideally you re-sign him for 3 years 3 mil-3.5 mil total, real solid depth player. AK I'm on the fence, can we trade him for value? Who can we sign with his cap hit? Would we be better off leaving his spot open for LeBlanc, Kristo, Gallagher etc(so maybe sign a 1 year veteran like Smyth Hecht Hejduk Prospal). Gorges I think unless his demands are way out there, you have to bring him back, hopefully around 13-14 mil for 4 years(max to 17 mil/4 years).
