  1. well these moves did improve our depth on D and in the goal. As long as we don't have a large amount of injuries we could be ok. Unfortunately, the only mention of STL moving a player because of cap issues is a winger. Just to jump way ahead. Next season could be the season we finally get a number 1 D man. Where the money would come from (I have no idea) Here are the early look ahead of Free Agent D men after next season: Seidenberg BOS Pitkanen CAR Hjalmarsson CHI Quincey DET Schultz, N EDM Markov MON Tallinder NJ Girardi NYR Del Zotto NYR (RFA) Timonen PHI Meszaros PHI Orpik PIT Boyle SJ Bouwmeester STL Phaneuf TOR A lot of big names on that list, especially the last 2
  2. I think we will see a serious slow in free agency. Teams have made the big splashes and now they want to get their RFAs signed. Once teams figure out their cap status. Then we may see more signings. We got 2 guys early for dirt cheap prices, it might take a week or two to get another winger at those prices. I can see a large amount of trades coming. Buffalo has a surplus of 4,5.6 Dman. Toronto may have trouble signing their RFA dmen and Kadri with their big winger signings. Will St. Louis be able to afford signing Stewart, Piet, D Russell, and G Allen? Flyers need to trade a Dmen. Pittsburgh has zero cap space and needs to fill roster spot (Niskanen is the name that may go). There are others that I am not thinking of right now.
  3. I agree with they don't want to trade Sutter. My only thought process is they have $53 million tied up for 11 players for '14-15 season. Unless the cap goes up significantly, that leaves about 15 million for 9 players. That includes needs of the entire right side of the offense, 3 defenders, back up goalie and another bottom 6 guy. I just don't believe they could afford to keep either Sutter or Nis after next season. The trade I proposed gives them a cap hit of about 3.5 mil for this season and next. A 56.5 mil cap hit for 14 players sounds better than a 53 mil for 11. I know it wont happen but it was a crazy thought I had.
  4. In the rare case in which we are able to get Jagr Tlusty-Staal-Semin Dwyer-Staal-Ruutu Jagr-Skinner-Lindholm Westgarth-Riley-Bowman/Sutter/Staal Not too bad if everyone can stay healthy.
  5. Weiss 5 yrs 4.9 mil per (DET) Clarkson 7 yrs 5.1 per (TOR) Stalberg 4 years 3 per (NSH) (I guy I hope to get but at 2.25 mil per not 3, so Im ok with not getting him) Bozak 5 years 4.2 per (TOR) Scuderi 4 years 3.375 per (PIT) great player but 4 years? Horton 7 years 5 mil.3 per (CLB) 7 years, whoa Clowe 5 years 4.85m per (NJ) Ference 4 years 3.25m per (EDM) great signing for next 2 years, they will regret the contract in years 3 to 4 Riberio 4 years 5.5 mil per (ARZ) ewwwww Alfredsson 1 year 3.5m with bonuses up to 5m (DET) good signing IMO Cullen 2 years 3.5 m per (NSH) glad we passed on that Ellis 2 years 900k per (DAL) Emery 1 year 1.65m (PHI) Flippula 5 years 5 mil per (TB) holy overpayment batman for a guy with 1 20 goal season Iginla 1 year 6 mil (BOS) Matt Cooke 3 years at 2.5 mil per (MIN) that's a little high IMO Michael Ryder 2 years at 3.5 mil per (NJ) supposedly we were in on it, I guess that MON connection Max Lapierre 2 years 1.1 mil per (STL)
  6. And Matt Cooke to MIN. So no improvement on the 3rd line still
  7. Iginla just signed to the Bruins. So it really does seem like it was Ryder we were in on 1 yr 6 mil man I wish we could be a Stanley cup contender and then still be able to sign a 6 mil contract to a FA.
  8. His relationship in MTL must have been why we were in on Ryder as well.
  9. Must have been Michael Ryder. He went 2 years at 3.5 mil per. That is about the range everyone was speculating and Hockeybuzz says we were vying for him. My guess we gave 3.5 mil at one and NJ was offering 2 years at 2.75-3 and then eventually upped it to 3.5 mil for 2.
  10. How about this trade option Harrison, Dwyer, and Riley Nash. 3.4 -3.625 mil cap (depending on what Riley is re-signed for) for Niskanen and Sutter 4,366,000 mil cap They gain three guys on the roster while gaining another 750k in cap. They wont be able to afford Sutter after next season and we can make up for our mistake.
  11. well I doubt Iginla goes for a one year deal seeing his large interest pool. Morrow? hmmm
  12. The only major guy left that would be considered major is Grabo. Any one else got any other ideas? I forgot about Jagr, thanks PK17
  13. 1 way deal? if so that's 1.7 mil for 2 guys to be backups
  14. Bobby Ryan was traded to the Sens for a 1st and 2 prospects
  15. Khudo seems like a good option to battle with Peters for number 2. One gets to be number 2 and the other gets to be AHL starter.
  16. Yea Columbus is another Carolina as far as signing dudes to bad contracts just to get them to play for the organization
  17. With only one season left on his contract and his ability to play (at times) couldn't be matched by any one in the FA pool. If a top D man was an upcoming FA and JR had an interview where he thought he would have signed, then Pits may have been bought out.
  18. So far: Weiss 5 yrs 4.9 mil per (DET) Clarkson 7 yrs 5.1 per (TOR) Stalberg 4 years 3 per (NSH) (I guy I hope to get but at 2.25 mil per not 3, so Im ok with not getting him) Bozak 5 years 4.2 per (TOR) Scuderi 4 years 3.375 per (PIT) great player but 4 years? Horton 7 years 5 mil.3 per (CLB) 7 years, whoa Clowe 5 years 4.85m per (NJ) Ference 4 years 3.25m per (EDM) great signing for next 2 years, they will regret the contract in years 3 to 4 Riberio 4 years 5.5 mil per (ARZ) ewwwww Alfredsson 1 year 3.5m with bonuses up to 5m (DET) good signing IMO Cullen 2 years 3.5 m per (NSH) glad we passed on that Ellis 2 years 900k per (DAL) Emery 1 year 1.65m (PHI) Flippula 5 years 5 mil per (TB) holy overpayment batman for a guy with 1 20 goal season So far Im glad JR has stayed out of these big signings. Overpaying and signing the older guys to longer deals than they are worth.
  19. Flip wants to play center, that's why he left Detroit. Probably too much money to have for a 3rd line center since we overpaid for Ruutu, J Staal, E Staal, and Semin to play here long term.
  20. He has forced himself into (unfortunately). With Faulk and Tlusty contract ending next season cap space has to come from some where. Faulk's will come from Pits contract leaving. Don't really have a place where Tlusty's to come from, unless the cap rises more than 4 mil next season (even if we could afford a salary that high). Well I think the partner will be Toronto. They seem to be the only one moving a top D man. I think something like Phaneuf, Reilly, and the rights to Colborne. for Skinner and Pits Phaneuf gives us our top D man (only signed for one more year), Reilly is a top D prospect this is a great addition for the long term, and Colborne is a C spec with some experience that needs to be signed (big guy at 6'5). We lose a lot in terms of offense but gain a lot of injury free D time. We would be hoping Colborne continues progress and can step in to be our 3rd line center. We lose 4 mil in cap and should have enough money to sign guys like Stalberg and Ference/O'Byrne while maintaining enough cap space to keep Faulk and Tlusty long term. Skinner gives them a great winger that is signed for a long time. Pits gives them a one year D man who can eat time like Phaneuf. Toronto will gain 4 mil in cap but they will still have 19 mil to re-sign Bernier, Kadri, and any other their RFAs.
  21. must be nice to improve the team without giving up any draft picks
  22. Ference would be a great addition but he is getting a lot of media attention, meaning he could get more money in his contract. He would be that older guy that could be great for the locker room. How does the organization feel about Murphy? If Murphy is nhl ready in the next 2 seasons then an older Ference would be the answer. If Harrison or Murphy don't quite pan out then a younger like O'Byrne may be the answer. Being younger we could bring him in for 4 seasons and he is getting a lot less media coverage (if any).
  23. It is always funny how owners complain about contracts in the NHL. Yet, their GMs are the one driving up contracts giving a player way more money than he should ever get because he is the one guy they want. The 2nd order effect is driving up the contract for the next guy that is similar in skill. And of course that drives up the contract for a guy better than both of them. They complain about it yet they are the ones who start it.
  24. Forward: Viktor Stalberg D man: Murray or Ference G: Garon, Mason, Khabi, Boucher?
