Always finding it necessary to point out that no matter what is said for public consumption, the GM these days has a President. In our case, that is Linden and his wants and desires, IMHO, are in play.
Makes it a little harder to rate JB cause you never really know for sure...

I would do both if Dallas has interest in Edler.

Edler + 2nd + ______ to Dallas for 3rd overall + Lehtonen/Niemi.

Tanev + 3rd + ______ to Tampa for Drouin.

Sign Brian Campbell as a guy who might be good for Hutton's development.

There's a fair number of other UFA defensemen who are 35+ who might come for a year or so, and offset the loss of our top pairing until we rebuild our blueline. Ideally you overpay Markov for one season as Montreal may be in tough to keep him now.

Well, Dorsett has now become somewhat of an enigma and I would think the odds of Vegas picking him are remote, to say the least.
When he comes back from his procedure, he may well have to re-create his game, even though he says otherwise.
I can just see him taking on guys who go after some of our younger players and in all honesty, they need to start fending for themselves to some degree.
With a roster spot at stake, I would try and move him if only for a 6th or 7th round pick.
At 2.65 mill for two more years, it might be impossible.
I don't hate the little rascal but he isn't right for what we are doing now..
