Well whats gonna happen here? There's a pretty big logjam for D. Just signed Smith to a pretty good deal, don't see him being jettisoned off for nothing. That leaves E and Q. I would rather have Q for his pk skill but E has a degree of toughness when he wants to use it. XO and 47 are over ripe. Then there's Kindl, who is offensively skilled but a defensive liability. I for one hope we send E on his merry way. Maybe package him and Howard for an asset.
Sure, I guess the kids can go to GR, but Marchenko already said he doesn't want to spend aother whole year in the A. I honestly think a great idea would to be move K and Q and give a spot to two of the kids. You may be able to get a pick for each of them.
