It's getting hard to see how we are gonna pay everyone down the line.
Karlsson 8? 9? Maybe more?
You start asking yourself how do you trade/move/make sure Vegas bites on Bobby Ryan
You have to be prepared to take a bad contract back. I don't think it will be Vegas that takes him though. Here's how you sell him:
Rags if/when Nash is a UFA after next season.
LA for Dustin Brown
San Jose once they decide what to do with Thornton/Marleau
Philly because of his ties to Bobby Clarke
Detroit as their annual reclamation project
Carolina as a marquee player
Vancouver to try to stimulate some offense (and give the Sedins a shot to be competitive next year)
In a perfect world you do the Duchene trade, followed up with a Ryan for Gudbranson trade.
