extras: Voros, (possibly Parentau depending on if Torts wants one or two extra forwards)
extra: Potter or Sauer
Tender Lisin an offer, he may go back to Russia but if he doesnt then I have no problem using him as trade bait. Remember, its not like he will cost a ton of money
Sign Demitra, one year around 1-1.5m, doesnt hurt to take a flier on a bounceback year from a proven veteran. Vinny will cost more. Demitra may also want to play with Gabby.
Demote Redden, guarentee Heik a spot. Something tells me we shouldnt be letting this kid leave for nothing. Hes not being a prima donna by asking for a spot, he deserves it and he has other potentially lucrative options in Europe. I think this kid will be a physical defensemen that will add offense.
Trade Sangs, EC and a pick for Versteeg. Can add Boyle too if Lisin returns and is not traded. EC will have value as a cheap top 6 player, as the Blackhawks are gonna need to trade some of their own top 6 this summer to deal with their salary cap hell.
Also, sign Staal long term, tender Girardi and Prust, resign Shelley
