a first round pick would be nice.
i love joe, patty, boyle, but probably 2 out of those three need to be shipped out for young assets. let clowe walk in the offseason. use the amnesty on either the burish or havlat contracts. start investing heavily in our farm system.
if burns can get and stay healthy, a core of burns, vlasic, demers, braun + two prospects/vet FAs makes a decent d corps. build the top two lines around pavs, couture and the lower lines with veteran additions and prospects as they come up from worchester. i really like what i've seen from sheppard. him, wingels and galiardi can be useful pieces on the lower lines.
give it a year or two and this team can start being a consistent playoff team again, if they draft really well they can be a cup contending team again. right now, this is absolutely not a cup contending team and there's no moves in one offseason to fix that. we've had a good run, time to turn the page.
