the difference is we're not exactly busting at the seams with highly thought of forward prospects who can't get playing time. I guess Matteau and Boucher are nice but I don't expect either of them to legitimately push for a top 9 spot out if camp.
We also know there will be injuries, last year we had guys like tedenby, Janssen and sestito plugging holes in the lineup. I'm not anxious to ship out the likes of Ryder and Brunner to go back to that.
But to your question - you just never know what Lou will do. I can say I think he'll wait to see what happens in camp but then he'll turn around and make a move tomorrow.
I wouldn't dump both Ryder and Brunner, just one of the two, preferably Ryder since Brunner can actually skate.
If more than one guy is on the move, I'd think it'd be in a package deal so we could unload Zubrus since Ruutu is playing the same role and is better at it.
That being said,I don't think we move more than one forward out since Clowe is a major ? healthwise and Havlat is injury prone as well. If we moved a couple guys then saw both Clowe and Havlat go down, all of a sudden our depth isn't there anymore.
