Damn... why couldnt Gillis trade Ballard and go after this guy.


Because no one wants Ballard or his terrible contract?

On another note: Crazy money being thrown around. Canucks are going to get buried when the next round of D-Man Contracts are up.

As of right now the best offer on the table for Carle comes from #TBLightning. Price can go up after Suter is signed and teams get desperate

Just like the fake tweet I posted in the other Matt Carle signing thread, overpayment.

Defense and goaltending were their primary issues now. I think they've addressed their needs quite adequately this off-season.

Ya that`s a bit high. I like their D core now. Forwards good, but no goaltending.

Hedman - Carle
Ohlund - Salo
Brewer- Lee
Mikkelson

Wouldn't include Ohlund in the pairings, his career might be over after knee replacement surgery.

I think it's a pretty good deal. Cap-hit is decent. After all, this is a guy that has proved many years that he can move the puck, put up points and be a + player.

Interesting stat:

He has more even strength points over the last 3 seasons than Ryan Suter (85 to 60).

ohlunds career is over


Reports stated his knee injury would be career-ending, but there has been no official announcement yet. His name is still listed on their roster, and he is apparently undergoing intense rehab to repair his knee.

Let's hope he can play one final year in the NHL.

We paid Garrison 4.5 for his 33 points, the Bolts just paid 5.5 for Carles 38. I wonder what Edler will get next year.... He is easily over 5 mill... Hoping for a hometown discount... maybe 6 year 30 mill? Wishful thinking at this point. Ballards 4.2 looks pretty good now

overpayment!

JAson Garrison salary and cap hit is going looks so good of all the free agent out there in terms of Defense

Suter was the top, Garrision was number 2 and Carle was number 3

One day some of us will look back on the year and look at the chicago, and most of us will realize that it was a small bump in the road to the cup

There goes Detroit's chances of replacing Lidstrom. Now all that's left is Kubina and Roszival, and Detroit still has to replace Stuart. They're going to be in tough if their top pairing is Kronwall - Quincey or Ericsson.

5.5 million for Carle is rediculous, he's a 40-point producer but brutal in his own zone. Suddenly Ballard at just over 4 million doesn't look so bad.

Also, Tampa is stacked on defence now, so I'm expecting a trade for a goalie sometime soon.

Bergeron - Brewer
Hedman - Ohlund
Carle - Salo
Aulie

That defence is eerily similar to the Cup winning D's of Boston and Los Angeles. Perfect mix of youth (Carle, Aulie, Hedman), veterans (Salo, Ohlund, Brewer), offensive puck movers (Bergeron and Carle), big shots (Salo, Bergeron) and physical shutdown guys (Brewer, Ohlund, Aulie).

Most impressively, the average size is around 6'3" 215lbs which is what you need in the playoffs to deal with big forwards. The last 2 seasons, the big forwards of Boston and Los Angeles pasted through smaller defences, but they wouldn't stand a chance against this Lightning D. Now if they can get some solid goaltending I'll consider them a true contender.

Stevie Why?

Thought Yzerman was drunk when he signed Salo to that deal, Now I am positive he has a drinking problem.

I like Ohlund as much as the nest guy, but there is severe doubt he will ever play hockey again. That's part of the reason Yzerman is adding so much to their blueline. Even if he does play, his mobility will be even more of an issue than it was when he played before and he wasn't fast then.
