Daniel - Henrik - Booth

Semin - Kesler - Parise

Burrows - Pahlsson - Moen

Higgins - Lapierre - Hansen

Edler - Stuart

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Ballard - Tanev/Gragnani

Luongo

Vokoun

So basically this line up is just asking for the cup.

Dump Raymond (frees up 2.55) Salo retires (frees up 2) Maybe dump Ballard (frees up 4.25). Cap goes up to $70 mill (gives us another 5.7) so, if my math is right, we would have $14.5 in cap space. So here are the salaries I thought of:

Semin: 2 years @ $4,000,000 annually

Parise: 6 years @ $5,000,000 annually

Stuart: 3 years @ $3,500,000 annually

Moen: 2 years @ $1,500,000 annually

Vokoun: 1 year @ $1,500,000

So its just slightly over. If Lack is ready next year then it would fit just under the cap.

Lol I think Vokoun did the 1 year $1million thing... He's a $4+million guy. I doubt he's gonna go that route again.

Semin will probably end up with $5 million. Moen will probably end up with $2 million, THE CAP IS GOING UP TO $70 MILLION!?! thats a huge hike IMO.

Parise is a $7.5 million guy, unless he goes for a structured long term thing to bump the cap number down ala Ilya.

I don't think Moen will be available. There were a number of reports around the trade deadline that the Canadiens told Moen's agent that he was in their plans for the future. Of course that could change if Gauthier gets the axe like he should

How much do you guys think Dennis Wideman will fetch?

Almost the same situation as Ehrhoff last year. Same age, similar season total & even similar career totals. Same size almost. I wonder if Dennis will be as greedy. Although I would venture to say that Wideman is a slightly better player and that he has looked better in previous playoffs. Ehrhoff was definitely better because of NB's system, whereas Wideman has put up the points in different situations.

I wonder if he'll seek a short or long term deal...

If Gillis could get him for 4.8-4.9 million over 6 years I think that would be a steal, although he'll probably get around 5.25-5.5 - at least offered by teams like NYI, etc.

This is if the salary cap (and it most likely will) goes up in the offseason:

Matt Carle, Jason Garrison & Pavel Kubina/ Brad Stuart for defense. And that would mean, no defenseman would get tired.

Hamhuis Bieksa

Edler Carle

Garrison Kubina/Stuart

Matt Carle: 3 year, $12.5 million deal. $4,166,666 cap hit.

Jason Garrison: 4 year, $13.3 million deal. $3,325,000 cap hit.

IF BRAD STUART: 3 year, $10.8 million deal. $3,600,000 cap hit.

IF PAVEL KUBINA: 2 year, $7 million deal. $3,500,000 cap hit. (Kubina will be 35)

Re-sign Samuel Pahlsson, Byron Bitz, Dale Weise, Aaron Rome & Eddie Lack.

Samuel Pahlsson: 2 year, $4.5 million deal. $2,250,000 cap hit.

Byron Bitz: 1 year, $700,000.

Dale Weise: 1 year, $700,000.

Aaron Rome: 1 year, $875,000.

Eddie Lack: 1 year $805,000.

Trade Schneider for Connolly+1st from TBL

Trade 2 1st's and Connolly for Dustin Brown.

Sedin Sedin Brown

Burrows Kesler Booth

Higgins Pahlsson Kassian

Malhotra Lapierre Hansen

Bitz, Weise

Hamhuis Bieksa

Edler Carle

Garrison Kubina/Stuart

Rome, Tanev

Luongo & Lack

Garrison, Tootoo and Syvret, please.

I've been wondering for years now why Danny hasn't found his way as a bottom pairing defenseman in the NHL but as a 7/8/9 man for us, he'd be solid. Tootoo is a player I have dreamed of seeing in a Canucks jersey since he was in juniors. Jason I'd like only for the right price. I have a feeling he'll command some big bucks and in that case I'm considerably less interested but a hometown boy taking a paycut to play in front of family and friends? I'm in.

Brad Stuart or Pavel Kubina for the 2nd pairing. If Wideman doesn't sign, Tanev gets bumped up and Salo reti... then sign Sheldon Brookbank for the #6 role. Decent skater, can fight and was one of only a few Ducks to not be a "minus" when the team was slumping.

Hammer - Bieksa

Edler - Stuart/ Kubina (I'll take Colaiacovo if the other two aren't available)/ Tanev

EDIT: what makes people think Wideman and Edler will go well together? Aren't they both basically strictly offensively oriented, even though they have the wheels to cover their mistakes? Who'll cover their own zone when they turn it over?

I would love to see Brad Stuart in a Canucks jersey.

Wideman would be good too but I think his value will be way to inflated come July 1st.

My Dream for next season:

D. Sedin H. Sedin Burrows

Booth Kesler Kassian

Jensen Phalsson Hansen

Higgins Lapierre Weise/pinizotto,Malhotra

Hamhuis Bieksa

Wideman Edler

Grossman Tanev

Luongo

Lack (most likely to happen if we deal shneider)

Changes: we sign wideman and grossman while losing ballard,raymond in trades for a stock up in draft picks.
