  1. I like Landeskog. Do we move Skins to the right side? Or if we go with the Swede line, do we really push Skins to the "3rd line" with TT/Aho and an unknown center(Roy maybe). Stempniak would replace Lindholm on the Staal line. based on his contract length, Skog would be a great addition. I don't see another big addition after that. Skins-???-Aho TT-Staal-Stempniak Skog-Rask-Lindholm Solid top 9.
  2. I looked it up and you could be right. The only language i find is re-acquire a player you have traded. Im not sure if signing a player is considered acquiring them. The rule states no team can re-acquire a player it trades between 1Jan 2017 & 1 Jan 2018 for 1 year. Again I have no idea if signing is considered acquiring. if not, im all about getting viktor for 2-3 years at about 4 to 4.5 million total.
  3. Would love to get Stalberg back but I believe we can't re-sign. Its based on the rule about not re-acquiring a player because of the expansion draft
  4. Sad, sad excuse for a write up this morning in the N&O. A great signing if it puts up similar numbers. A risky signing If his numbers were manufactured by the Hawks as he is unproven as a starter. I like it though. Now it's time for the O.
  5. So when lack doesn't get chosen in the draft, what happens then?
  6. Rem, i doubt we see 2 offensive checkers in the lineup next season. We could see Roy to play 3rd line center if we get a top line winger. I doubt we get both players. Getting 1 of those 2 is a big enough dream as it is. It would be sweet though. KJUN, unless we get a big punishing center, adding Drouin wouldn't be a great idea. Basically we would have Drouin, Stempniak, Aho, and Skinners to be paired up on 2 lines. One of those lines would be beat up a lot. We have Hanifan to get it done. This would be the year to move a Dman for O talent. Cam Fowler, Trouba, TVR, and others could be had because of expansion draft exposure. Could replace a good young defender with another for cheap. I don't see it though.
  7. First, understand i was just messing about the trading deal. B. With Vegas getting 6th and not having that big name to slide right in and take the reigns, they are a prime trade up candidate. Offer either swap 1sts & bottom 2 2nds or offer swap 1sts and a decent prospect. Either way Vegas will need to fill a minor league roster. Im guessing the second option because Vegas will need age available players for the AHL. The Chin or someone of that level.
  8. I wonder if we sign him to a short deal. 2 years maybe 3, allow him to see how he does as a starter. The deal may be lower in money like 3.5 million or so.
  9. Yes, yes you want us to trade up in the draft.
  10. With Ward's NTC we can sign darling now and protect him. Interesting to see what we sign him for. He has put up good numbers that is starting salary worthy but never had to be that guy.
  11. Im all for Draisaitl. If I were Edmonton, I would give away RNH for a prospect and decent pick before allowing Draisaitl to walk on a offer sheet. Draisaitl + a pick and a prospect is worth more than RNH + 2 firsts, a second, and a third.
  12. Rem my mention of RFA offer sheets was solely based on potential success rate. Chicago, Minnesota, and the Rangers will have serious cap issues. Of course Granlund or Zibenijad would be good center additions. Nino would be amazing to get a good true mythical RW. I would agree we should see 3-4 moves. The dependence on a 4th move is do we get a top line center or winger. If its a winger then we'll need another move to get a good 3rd line center. Im good with Oshie and the fact we don't trade any assets.
  13. I hope we get Slavin at 5 yrs at 5 AAV. Pesce and Hanifan get 3 year deals. Slavin is already worth the risk of a 5 yr deal for a younger player. Pesce abd Hanifan are good but not worth the high price of signing long deals, yet.
  14. Rem, you make valid points on how much cap space we have but, I don't believe we get that high in spending. We have to add 15 million in re-signings (I agree with your orinciple numbers). I believe 62 million is the highest we may go. Unless deep playoff runs happen and more media/advertising money comes a long. With that said I believe number 1 center is the best route over RW. Oshie is a great option and if we could get a number 1 center and RW then go for it. As for RFA offer sheets: Tampa now has enough cap space for their crew. Edmonton and Montreal both have more than enough space to cover an offer. The real candidates for offer sheets are RW Panik from Chicago, Ganlund and Nino from th Wild and Zibenjad from NYR.
  15. Yes Hossa's cap hit was what I posted. For only 1 million a year Hossa would be worth it. We aren't a cap ceiling team so the almost 5 million difference in cap and salary is no biggie for us. And his production is well worth 1 million. Yes he or Stempniak would be over-slotted. I would rather have a number 1 center than over-slotting Rask at one. Hossa is closer to a top line RW than Rask to a number one center. Still a good O in my opinion: Skins-New guy-Hossa TT-Staal-Lindholm Aho-Rask-Stempniak Good 4th liners i still don't believe we can afford two top liners, a goalie, and 5th Dman with TT needing re-signing and Lindholm and the 3 Dmen needing re-signing next year.
  16. Hossa has 4 more years at 5.275 million per.
  17. Needs C: trade options are Granlund and Duchene. Granlund will be cheaper because I have little doubt they move him. He put up 69 points and is due a good raise. Wild cant afford it. Duchene move is out of want not necessity. D: Plenty of options for pre expansion draft trade or UFA. Goalie: tricky
  18. Top UFA forwards may be tough to sign. The expansion draft protection of 7-3 doesn't allow for many good forwards to be available. LV will be looking for a big name to anchor the O with their high draft picks. Also, Zona will need 15 million plus to get to the cap floor again. Datsyuk's contract comes off the books. Do they get some bad contracts or try to actually win at some point?
  19. So we have these guys to expose: Forwards: PDG Stempniak Nestrasil D: Dahlbeck G: Lack
  20. We have 15 million in cap from this years team while needing to re-sign TT. I still am expecting we don't make big splashes. 2 reasons: 1. History says otherwise 2. We have 3 talented Dmen we have to re-sign next offseason at 3-5 million a piece and Lindholm. How much do we save in preparation for a big spending offseason next year? we might get a guy that can get us 10-15 goals to meet Rem's well calculated goals needed while expecting young forwards to improve. The goalie would be Halak or older starter that can take load off Ward. Maybe its pessimism or maybe its realism.
  21. We haven't talked much about the draft in a while here but I vote no on MAF.
  22. Seems reasonable but we'll have a tight window to ink a deal, before FA but after expansion draft. We could have a deal in place until he gets a call from another team that is better than ours. The expansion draft throws a wrinkle into everything.
  23. I agree Vegas may be looking for quantity but I doubt they move down. They will need a name to hang the franchise banner. I imagine they will benefit from a good draft slot like the Pens did so badly when Crosby was in the draft or the Cavs needed LeBron. Can't let our new expansion team not have a franchise name. Maybe just my cynicism. And they'll get a 2nd when they draft number 1 in 2018.
  24. Nice recap Rem. I had the same difficulty when trying to figure out how to predict who will be there. Im a fan of Kostin. I think 2 Dmen will be taken before our pick: Liljegren & Valimaki. We may see Maker taken as well. That may be driven by the expansion draft. A lot more good young Dmen available in the expansion draft, moreso than young forwards. I'd had to chose an order of preference based on who could be there: Glass Rasmussen Kostin RHD Foote i dont expect the 1st two will be there but there is a chance.
  25. Darling is UFA. Vegas can take RFAs.
