Zegras, Drysdale, Lundestrom. That's your core. Everyone else should be up for grabs, including Gibson. Not saying they HAVE to deal everyone else, just saying they should at least listen on trades for those guys.

Of course, it's Murray, so it ain't happening.

Gibson's only 27 so I don't think you deal him. Who do you replace him with?

I'm torn about dealing Gibson. Depends on the haul.

It's hard to tank and climb back up to respectability. Gibson at least gives you a shot most nights. Could help the kids to not have to worry about beach balls going in.

But if he can get you another three players for the rebuild, maybe you do it now?

An elite goalie does sooooo much for your club, but it can also mask front office laziness and/or incompetence. Look at what the friggin' Rangers did the whole time they had Henrik Lundqvist. He gave them everything he had and they served up mediocre roster after mediocre roster for him to bail out every night.

Also, there's a huge issue with Gibson--dude is nearly Pascal Leclaire-level injury prone. I say deal him now while you can, before he REALLY gets banged up and turns into, well...Carey Price.
