  1. Say what you may about Jim's trade and free agent signing record, but he can "rebuild" the team quickly ... Before the Trade Deadline (to recoup assets for UFAs): 1. Trade Tanev and Boucher to TBL for Sustr, Callan Foote, 2018 1st Rd Pick, 2019 2nd Rd Pick 2. Trade Sustr and Vanek to BOS for 2018 2nd Rd Pick and 6th Rd Pick 3. Trade Gagner and BOS 2nd Rd Pick to CLB for Jack Johnson, Trade Johnson to NASH for 2018 1st Rd Pick 4. Trade Gudbranson to TOR for Kapanen and 2018 1st Rd Pick 5. Trade Biega to WASH for 2018 4th Rd Pick 6. Trade Wiercioch and Nilsson ($1M retained) to CAL for 2018 FLA 4th Rd Pick After the season, before the Entry Draft: 7. Trade Kapanen, Foote, Lockwood, TOR 1st Rd Pick to OTT for Erik Karlsson 8. Trade Sutter and Hutton and EDM for Nugent-Hopkins 2018 Entry Draft: 9. VAN wins lottery (our bad luck finally ends!) - Draft Rasmus Dahlin 10. Trade TB 1st, NASH 1st and Baertschi to move up in draft ... select Brady Tkachuk or Filip Zadina 2018 Free Agent Frenzy: 11. Sign John Tavares - 7 years $10.5 million ... trade addition of Karlsson and the opportunity to have Boeser on his RW is too irresistible 12. Sign Evander Kane - 5 years $6 million ... wants to come home to Vancouver 13. Re-sign Sedins 1 year $3.5 million 14. Trade Nugent-Hopkins and Edler (waives NTC during offseason and signs contract extension) to MTL for Shea Weber and 2020 1st Rd Pick ... MTL needs a top centre after losing out on Tavares; also unloads Weber contract 15. Trade Granlund and Stecher to BUFF for Reinhart (re-sign for 3 years $2.2 million) 16. Trade Tryamkin to WASH for Madison Bowey ... Nikita joins a Russian friendly team 17. Re-sign Vanek ($2 million) 18. Re-sign Dowd, Pouliot 2018/19 ROSTER Kane - Tavares - Boeser Dahlen - Horvat - Reinhart Sedin - Sedin - Vanek/Goldobin Eriksson - Dowd - Virtanen Gaunce Dahlin - Karlsson Juolevi - Weber Pouliot - Bowey Brisebois - Chatfield Markstrom Demko PLAN B's - Insert Gaudette on RW with Sedins, if Vanek does not sign after being traded at TDL - #10 - if unable to trade up to draft Tkachuk or Zadina ... Baertschi back on LW with Horvat ... continue to allow Dahlen to develop in SEL - if ready Pettersson can play LW (with Horvat) - If Tavares doesn't sign as UFA, keep Nugent-Hopkins as #1B/2 Centre CAP SITUATION (under $75 million for 2018/19 season) - Still able to re-sign Karlsson to a 8 year $10 million contract extension, after Sedins retire after 2018/19 season - Re-sign Boeser to 8 year $6 million contract extension
  2. 1. Lose Sbisa in Expansion Draft 2. Re-sign Horvat (bridge contract $4.5 million for 2 years ... still needs to prove that he's a #1 C - his stats fell when he had to face #1 defense pairings toward the end of the year) 3. Trade Edler to DAL for #29, rights to Nichushkin and Niemi 4. Trade Nischuskin, #29, #55 (CLB) to PHIL for #2 5. Draft #2 Hischier or Patrick 6. Draft #5 Makar / Mittelstadt / Heiskanen 7. Trade Tanev to TB for Drouin 8. Sign Alzner (4 years - $5.25 million) ... Burnaby boy, need some additional grit on the backend Leave draft picks in minors/Utica to develop ... in order to tank next season for Rasmus Dahlin (D - 2018 Draft) and Jack Hughes (2019 Draft) Granlund - Drouin - Boeser Baertschi - Horvat - Virtanen D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Goldobin Eriksson - Sutter - Dorsett/Rodin Alzner - Stecher Juolevi - Guddy Hutton - Subban Holm - Pedan - Biega - Chatfield Markstrom Niemi
  3. With the Hall trade to make room for Lucic in Edmonton, JB needs to go to Plan B. As much as I wanted Lucic in Vancouver, the proposed 7 yrs for $7 million will be too onerous in years 5-7 of the contract. Also with Stamkos off the market, the teams that wanted to sign him will redivert their $$ towards the remaining UFA's, making it more difficult to sign Eriksson, Ladd, Brouwer, Okposo. Plan B: 1. Trade Higgins and Sbisa to CBJ for Hartnell and Johnson. Gives CBJ cap relief. Torts liked Higgins ... we save the buyout $$ 2. Trade Burrows to CAR for 2nd Rd Pick ... Carolina needs $$ to get to the cap floor and they only pay $3 million for $4.5 million in cap $. 3. Sign Backes 3 yrs $5 million per year ... remembers the offer sheet he signed back in the Gillis days 4. Sign Helm $3 million per year for 4 yrs ... MH Tigers connection 5. Re-sign RFA's to 2 year bridge deals (like Hertl in SJ) - Horvat $2.8 million, Hutton $2 million, Markstrom $3.5 million, Tryamkin $1.5 million 6. Extend Gudbranson $5 million for 6 years 7. Virtanen plays in AHL next year to gain experience (or until we trade Hansen or Dorsett at trade deadline) CAP $ 70,785,892 (space ~$2.2 million) ... and under cap for future years too D. Sedin / H. Sedin / Backes Hartnell / Sutter / Rodin Baertschi / Horvat / Hansen Granlund / Helm / Dorsett Etem / Gaunce Edler / Tanev Johnson / Gudbranson Hutton / Tryamkin Pedan / Biega Miller Markstrom
