For Vanek we are looking for a second line winger + in return
For Hodgson we are looking to move him in a deal for a second line center
For Regeher we are looking to fix any other holes we create with our other deals
The captain has been traded! We, as a franchise, owe a lot to Eric Staal. He was a huge contributer in our Stanley Cup victory, and has been the model of skill and class for our team. It's with a heavy heart that we send him packing.
But, we feel that we picked up some tremendous, franchise level talent, who will be the building blocks of our team for the next decade. We thank Florida for a smooth transaction.
