If they're smart they'll let Babs decide which guys he wants to build around, and trade everyone else. They absolutely HAVE to trade one of Phaneuf or Kessel though, in order to get an additional first rounder. This would also go a long way toward ensuring that they'll suck enough to get a HIGH pick next season. The worst thing that could happen is for them to be mediocre. Or heaven forbid, make the playoffs in the 8th seed and lose early. Then they won't get anything worth a damn.
With their normal first rounder, plus the one they get for Dion or Kessel, they need to take centers. Good centers. Because their center depth is trash. And if your only quality offensive players are wingers, you're in trouble.
