herman:
I think our defense improves structurally, regardless of personnel changes (or lack thereof).

Our top forwards are expanding their games into better defensive responsibility under Keefe, and the team is going to get an actual training camp to develop and ingrain the system patterns.

Muzzin - Holl
Rielly - Marincin
Sandin - Dermott
Rosen - Liljegren

If we trade out both Johnsson and Kapanen (unlikely, but hey) that's 7ish M that could be a big swing. Another option is Colin Miller who has fallen out of favour in Buffalo (for some reason) and is affordable and Dubas/Keefe are familiar with him. Can he handle second-pairing alongside Rielly or Muzzin?

Marincin would be a decent goalie.

If that were true, Edmonton would never have let him go  ;)

Next we send Kapanen to Columbus for Anderson(+?) and sign Anderson for slightly under Kapanen's cap hit x 4 years (ideally; will settle for 3).

That leaves us with a spot for Mikheyev with nearly 3 million cap space available and Dermott, with the backend all filled out, can be shopped for picks/prospects.

Crazy? Unrealistic? Stupid? All three?
