John Tortorella is right

and I also agree with most part of your list except Edler and Booth. Edler I don't he's leaving very soon.

Booth- I think he should get a chance to play a full season when healthy with this team. I don't know what will happen to him though

IF they get eliminated then this core has ran its course. They gave us excitement in previous years but its time for a change.

Time for rebuild and get younger.

Bieksa for 1st rd pick

Hamhuis for 1st

Lu for hopefully a 1st rd pick

Sedins?

Burrows - would like to keep but as a 3rd liner

Booth and Ballard for anything to free cap space.

Keep edler or trade to philly for couturier + or package for weber.

Bottom line is try to get multiple 1st rd picks this upcoming deep draft. This core is older and have lots of mileage already. And other teams' superstars have gotten better and some have hit their prime.

MG needs to be gone aswell. The fact we could've kept Torres after our 2011 run and decided to let him walk and then try and trade draft picks for him at this year deadline just shows how bad of GM he really is. I really hope his greasy, baggy eyed ass his out of here, aswell AV.

I agree that the coaching staff should be sent out on the next train if we go down in the first round. Vigneault is far beyond his expiry date and has to be canned. Sure he has regular season success, but come the playoffs he lacks the drive to push his team to the next level. They have to do that themselves.

While the Sedins may be safe, I don't think that should be a given. If they can be traded for a true impact forward or defenseman or both, with some grit and size, I say do so. After watching tonight's game, something seemed pretty clear. They are on the downslope of their career and frankly wilt in the playoffs. If it wasn't for Kesler bringing the team to life, there woudn't have been any overtime. Henrik and Daniel were non existent for the majority of the game. Henrik especially should be throwing hits and shooting like mad to get the team that he is the captain of inspired.

While I respect the Sedins immensely for their skill, fortitude and generosity, they lack that one trait essential to winning it all. They have no killer instinct. They were uneasy on the puck, and were clearly unable to display that magic they show during the regular season. Only Burrows was a menace on the first line tonight. He has the brass balls to get in the faces of Shea Weber, Milan Lucic, and on and on, no matter that cost to him. The Sedins aren't game changers in the playoffs. Kesler, Luongo, Burrows? Yes. Henrik and Daniel? No

We have 1 more year of the Sedins on their current contracts then their up for renewal. Awesome guys but simply can't get it done in the playoffs. They'll be re-signed but i wouldn't offer them anything more than half of what their making now. So exhausted of watching them year after year being shut down.
