    I would definitely move on from Hayes and Vesey and Names, but that's only if they can get Tavares. If they can't, you bridge all them and you lower expectations and your chances. Ensuring another year with a good draft pick.
    Dude-man, I'm just referring to a 2-3 year plan in which players like Staal and Hank, as well will be in or closer to their end of contract dates. I was thinking along the lines of a 2-3 year rebuild. It coincides well with getting close to the end of those guys deals. Hank's deal is a killer and even though I love the guy to death, that 10M tag is a huge obstacle which will only become more of an issue as we move forward, I think. Hank's best years may very well be behind him very soon.

    Staal on the other hand, I was never a fan of....BUT I will say this: He was better under Torts than under this last hunk of shit we had back there. AV gave the defense NO support, and if they couldn't weave a pass through 2 forcheckers with a guy in their face, they were up shit's creek.

    I wanna see Staal this season with real system of puck support before I evaluate him again
