  1. Skinner-Rask-Williams Aho-Staal-Lindholm TT-Ryan-Stempniak McGinn-Jooris-Nordstrom Good lineup but not playoff confident yet.
  2. Im not sure. I was doubtful Big Joe would get more than one 1 year from anyone. But I bet most werent keen on much commitment until his knee has proven out. I bet Marleau has a few good offers.
  3. Joe back in SJS. wonder what Marleau is going to do
  4. What about the current picks? Also what about next year? Outside of Stempniak not being kept, we don't have a lot falling off the roster. We need to 1 year deals.
  5. I highly doubt we are going to sign Big Joe, Marleau, or Radulov at this point. I would be surprised if we got any better than a 3rd line center.
  6. Man the cap space issues of a bunch of teams are stopping the big 3 from signing.
  7. A. Shattenkirk is vastly overrated because of his strong partners in the past. He went the Capitals and wasn't much. B. NYR have jacked their cap again. They have 8 million left to re-sign Zibanejad and Fast then get one more roster forward. They have about 13 million of salary falling off next year but have 4 RFAs as well.
  8. Smith we needed but Kitchon I don't understand. We're eating contract space.
  9. Signed goalie Jeremy Smith. Was in the Colorado organization. Bruins before that.
  10. Lets see how much of the 6 million we used. What is our expected internal budget? 61 million?
  11. Yep yesterday's news. When you listen to the tsn insiders, they don't mention our name as a partner.
  12. VAN is really active. Un "confirmed" signings of Gagner, Del Zotto and Nilsson. Plus, Demers just nixed a trade to Vancouver.
  13. Bob Mckenzie's list of basically confirmed signings: Ryan Miller- ANA Steve Mason- WPG Girardi- TBL Trevor Daley- DET Brian Elliot- PHI Chad Johnson- BUF Patrick Sharp- CHI Bernier- COL Dadonov & Haley- FLA Pavalec- NYR Gagner, Del Zotto, Nilsson- VAN
  14. It opens at noon. Was this sarcasm? My bad if I missed it.
  15. If and only if we believe Fluery is capable of a top 3 Dman in 2 years. Of course have a plan to get one of LV's defenders that want to move
  16. Yep we didn't get a single mention from any of the 3 expects. We are chop liver. We'll see what we can get but I expect we'll end up taking Hossa's contract to get Anisimov and getting a Capitals forward for pennies on the dollar. Both teams will be well above the cap after tomorrow.
  17. If we are passed over by everyone then we may do it. Better get Anisimov out of the deal. He is a good 2 C. Hossa is going to be LTIR'd unless there is any chance he is able to come back. Which his deal is a PK special, high cap low salary.
  18. Hate to tell you but I listened to both TSN insider sessions about Duchene, Joe, Marleau, J Williams, etc. not one mention as a possibility for any big name. Not one. So I think it's just about clicks so they talk about the big teams / recently successful ones.
  19. Anyone want Murphy back? He is on waivers???
  20. Something had to 95% done to give away 2 NHL players for a ECHL guy. He is still playing it pretty close though. We have zero idea what "not cheap" is. If it were Joe and Marleau, it would be great for us. Leadership, scoring, size, and sets up for the future really good. we'll have a lot of talent trying to make the big club over the next 2 years. We'll need good short term veterans until then.
  21. Do what??? Is this for real or are we just trying to get fan interest? Although not cheap is highly subjective. Not cheap for PK could be a drop in the bucket to 25 of the other 30 GMs.
  22. Probably Chicago. Take Hossa's contract with Anisimov. Hossa will be LTIR'd. So no issue. When he comes back, he'll be paid 1 million a year with a 5 million cap hit.
  23. Well the best trade partners we have right now are Chicago and Washington. Caps have 12.5 million in cap with a need for 4 or 5 roster forwards, 1 defender and a backup. Both of their remaining RFA forwards will eat most of that. I have discussed Chicago's issues. Anisimov and Kruger will be available.
  24. No you can't and doing that scenario is dangerous. If Williams retires after season 1, he will incur a penalty to the cap for front loading the contract. It makes sense based on how much money we'll spend next year. Its a risk though (although we wont be a cap team).
