THE Plan would be:
1. Francine trade: At the worst case, trade him for Booth (reunited with Weiss... and still 1 year on his contract). Francine and twins sister's could be interesting for Canucks.
2. Quincey trade: Since his best days were in LA, I would send him, Eaves and a pick to Kings for Clifford.
3. Emmerton and a pick for Rundbland, I think that at this point his value is low... but he could be nice fit here with Either Kindl or DeKe. Provide us option for the 2nd PP unit.
4. Sammy: bye/bye
Z - Dats - Bert
Alf - Weiss - Tatar
Nyquist/Booth - Andersson - Abdelkader/Clifford
Clifford - Helm - Tootoo/Miller/Cleary
Kronwall - E
Kindl - Rundbland
DeKe - Smith
Almquist - Lashoff - Ouellet (as a 7th D)
Trading Franzen to Vancouver and taking on Booth is terrible for us! Franzen will retire before his contract is up and we will take the brunt of the contract penalty (we can buy him out this offseason instead). Instead we take on 1 more year of booth at 4.25mill and he is more useless than franzen then years down the road we get stuck with franzen's cap penalty from retirement.
EDIT: I like the rundblad idea - but bags would destroy him (another offensive dman)
