Seems like the Tank is officially on , don't mean to be negative but trying to be realistic.
So as the title implies among the current line-up who is part of the solution and who is part of the problem?
Part of solution?
Desharnais(up and comer)/Pacioretty(up and comer)/Eller (up and comer)E.Cole (Veteran Core)/Bourque (Veteran Core)/Gionta (Veteran Core)/Andrei Kostitsyn (worth more to us then packaged in a trade)/Moen perfect (3/4th line winger).
Gorges / Markov (veteran PMD) / Subban / Emelin
Part of the problem/needs to be replaced?
Gomez/Darche (Need more physical energy player)/Nokki/ Plekanec with all due respect this guy is above average in regards to pk and effeciency but we need him replaced with a stronger center that can carry the load.
(Kaberle could be kept if he brings his A game and we can afford the salary cap wise).
