At the very least, they'll be able to trade Jackman at the draft. If all else fails, someone will trade something for the rights to negotiate exclusively for 1 month.

unless

Jackman and his agent make it abundantly clear they plan to troll the UFA waters. In which case I will be disappointed in him extremely and he'll pretty much be dead to me.

The lines may be juggled as the situation calls for it.

Kariya-Tkachuk-Boyes
Perron-McDonald-Stempniak
A. Vermette-McClement-Oshie
King-Hinote-Backes
Berglund

B. Campbell-Wagner
McKee-Johnson
Salvador-Polak
Woywitka

Legace
Toivonen
Schwarz

One key UFA signing to give the Blues the skilled defenseman to help the PP (a major weakness to address). Another newcomer acquired in a trade to give the team more speed and offensive potential. Overhaul on the blueline in favor of youth, for reasons documented elsewhere in this neck of the woods. Salvador re-signed (sorry IB) to maintain the element of physicality on the blueline. Three offensive lines with skill and speed spread out, yet also defensively responsible forwards included in the bunch.

One can always dream.

What did you do with Brewer, Backman and Jackman?

Casualties of a conscious blueline cleansing. I assumed someone would care to add them to their defensive corps. If Jackman could somehow land Vermette from the Sens, and EB-CB duo, well, to teams riddled with injuries or otherwise pretending to contend for the Cup. When you take their salaries into account, it may be harder to find a suitor for them, but I brushed those factors aside in my flight of fantasy.
