Do you think there is a chance they were holding Liljegren out because he might have been a part of a trade that they were trying to piece together?   It make sense that they would move a forward, but perhaps to a team trying to rebuild, they would want someone who is younger along with a pick.

Honestly, no. More and more I'm convinced that not doing anything was a vote of no confidence in this group and any significant moves will be made in the off-season when they can make complete conclusions about this season.

So to expand on what I meant was something along the lines of move Barrie for a pick and a prospect, and then move that pick, prospect, and Liljgren out for someone like Dumba.

The talk around Barrie was apparently pretty heavy Saturday and yesterday.  I think there was some fire there. 

As you say though, I could also see them looking at the loss on Saturday night and taking a step back and saying that as constructed right now, the team really doesn't have a chance of competing, so play out the season and then reassess in the summer when there are some more options available to them.
