To Tampa: Luongo,Raymond,Ballard,3rd Round Pick
To Vancity: Mattias Ohlund, Victor Hedman, 2nd and 5th Round Pick
Getting rid of Raymond is pretty self-explanatory
Ballard because he is a cap bust and a failure (besides his awesome hipcheck), he is not worth 4 mil
I want Mattias Ohlund because he is a forever canuck and Has great relationship with our players and the city. I love his defensive play and has great playmaking skills. He is also offensive when you want him to be and he is physical
Victor Hedman- This swede is born in the same hometown as the Sedins, Has great relationship with them. He is 6'4. Great physical player. Great replacement for Ballard which is a cap bust.
I would like Stamko's to come here and I would be willing to throw in a 1st round pick but We have enough centremen and top 6 forwards, UNLESS WE GET RID OF KESLER, which is not likely at all.
Lines after off season:
Weise,Lapiere,Hansen or someone else. Not sure
Hedman,Tanev( or Rome/Alberts)
Cory (sorry, i can't spell his last name)
Lack ( he may not be NHL ready but give him the preason and play him in games vs NYI,CBJ, etc. and he will get better with our great coaching staff.
I am positive that Ohlund will love to come back here. We will have a total of 7 Swedes, 8 Canadians, and 4 Americans and 2 Danishs
Luongo to tampa would get us MUCH more compared if we escorted him to Florida. Florida has limited skill players and we don't REALLY need toughness. Draft picks are not the best. Tampa has much more options and it is in Florida which Luongo's family loves. I ship him out there.
Ohlund and Edler would be a great pairing.
If Salo decides to retire, I am happy for him but if he decides to stay around, I'd trade him. I would't put him with Hedman because Tanev is doing a great job as a young player and Sami is not as reliable. Tanev didn't get a minus in like 17 consecutive games sometime around this season.
