At this point to make the moves we need to make to improve the team after this trade the moves we need to make are to trade the Kassian contract (3,2 million until 23-24) apparently Pittsburgh has interest so get what you can for him. Ideally a bottom six-forward (Bleuger's RFA rights perhaps?) making n more than 1 million. Buying out Neal or Koskinen (or both) is the next move. I don't like holding on to the dead cap space but when you have the need to resign guys and somehow improve the team like we do you have to make sacrifices. I prefer buying out Koski his buyout is more friendly and having an ineffective goalie is more of a liability than an ineffective forward. Trade Turris as well he is awful you might get a 7th rounder from a team with a lot of cap space. This gives us some breathing room to sign back our important free agent's (Yamamoto, Larsson and Smith) and maybe add a backup goalie and a 3rd line center.
