So in the last 2 playoff series we realised that we were outmatched offensively and physically. We haven't made any significant changes to our top 6 to fix that issue. I believe Shane Doan if the right price willing to take a contenders paycut could fill the gap on that second line. Or perhaps Ryan Clowe from the sjs he has one year remaining on his contract at 3.75 mil he is a heart and soul guy from Newfoundland I believe so and is a decent playmaker and can stick up for his teammates when needed. Then theres Todd Bertuzzi who has the cheapest cap hit of upwards of 2 million and can serve as a temporary power forward to perhaps mentor Kassian. So here are my following proposals for each of these players

Sign Shane Doan for 2 years/5.5 million or 4 years/20 million
Acquire Ryan Clowe from the Sharks for perhaps Luongo if they choose to deal Niemi.
Todd Bertuzzi for perhaps Keith Ballard which would be extra 2 million going their way.

What do you guys think this is my first post this year so please give me some much needed feedback thanks guys.

I like the Clowe trade if we can't sign Doan. We'd likely have to add a prospect, which I can live with.
Bertuzzi isn't coming back here with the court issue, and Ballard is actually a pretty good D-man. Our depth is terrible if we lose him.

Yeah thanks for the much needed feedback and yeah right now Clowe is a good option if we don't sign Doan but I think we might have to give up a bit more.

Clowe would fit in really well here, but he would be hard to get from San Jose who likely isn't all that interested in lui.

But i would start Kassian on the second line if he has a good camp if we miss out on Doan

Not interested in Bertuzzi at all. Clowe would be nice but I honestly think we'd have to overpay and the Sharks could likely get a better package from a different team. Doan is our best shot right now.

No- too soft, can't pass, can't score. could be good on 3rd though

Doan- wouldn't cost anything but cap space and bertuzzi isn't what he used to be

Come to think of our forwards would be stacked if we got all three

Sedin - Sedin - Doan
Booth - Kesler - Clowe
Burrows - Bertuzzi - Kassian
Higgins - Lapierre - Hansen

Stacked and HUGE :mellow:

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs


   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

The only realistic one is Doan, and even that is not likely. We will have to overpay to get Clowe, he is the heart and soul of the San Jose team. Bertuzzi is not what we need right now.

I figured since Bertuzzi is Kassian's favourite player it would be a good idea to put them on the same line.

Clowe would be incredibly difficult to get, and I wouldn't want Bertuzzi anymore.
Doan is the only feasible option, but he'll probably end up back in Phoenix.

The one with the best chance is Doan, and even that is pretty slim. Bert isn't coming here. And I doubt San Jose want to get rid of Clowe, they would probably rather go in with him and Niemi than trade for an upgrade.

Doan probably won't sign here, Bertuzzi ain't coming back and Clowe will be very costly to acquire.
Sig too big.

I like Clowe and Doan. But not happening. I hope Raymond is gone by deadline. Sooner rather than later.

I just want to know who the 5 numbskulls were that voted for Raymond. That's like hoping we trade Lou for Reimer straight up.

All three would help add to the team but i think Doan would be the most likely to join the team and that's a huge long shot. You can tell he's doing everything he can to stay a coyote and with the possible lock out i think id pass on him if he wants that 4yr deal, 3yr tops.

Clowe would be the best fit id think though and who id want with his age, size and grit. He's similar to Doan but younger and also a great fighter and will stick up for his teammates. He might be available being in his last year of his contract and the lack of speed the sharks have. Him being in the same division i doubt a player like Clowe would be traded to us, most likely out east if he got traded but stranger things have happened.


Bertuzzi, i still have a soft spot for him and still watch him but theres no way he's coming back.
