I would keep the following in-canon: 1. KOTOR 2. Plagueis novel 3. Darth Bane trilogy 4. Outbound Flight 5. Shadows of the Empire 6. Death Star 7. the "tales from" books, Mos Eisley cantina and Jabba's palace. Each of these could realistically have been kept in the NewCanon, without disrupting anything else new that exists. Maybe Shadows of the Empire would be pushing it...but still. I also would've preferred Thrawn's original storyline. I DO like how he was introduced in the NewCanon, but I like the original Thrawn Trilogy better.
