Just curious, who are these five? Doughty, Kopitar, Frolov, Brown, and Simmonds? Quick?
Kopitar, Doughty, Brown, Quick, and Bernier. Though I might be willing to part with one of the goalies if I absolutely had to, but it would take a while for me to get to that point. Too risky to deal either one. If the one you trade pans out and the one you keep flops... The first three are kind of a given in my mind. I would trade Simmonds in a package deal for Kovalchuk, but that is about it. For me to deal him, it would take massive overpayment, he is worth far more to me than any team would pay, but Kovy would change that instantly if he was placed in front of me in a deal.
Johnson, #5 pick, Moller, boyle and Bernier
He wants to play with Frolov esp. after this years world championship, so no way he;s included. plus we need to fill up some LW and you don't give up a LW for a LW. That'll just keep the gap open for another LW
