So who replaces Malholtra? Who replaces Raymond? How about Hansen, Tanev, and Schroeder's extensions?

you know the cap is going down too right?


Schroeder and Tanev would not need a big raise to be re-signed. Heck, Raymond and Schroeder might get traded down the road for someone that can replace Malhotra. You also have to remember that our whole second line has not played much of this season and it is probably a big reason why Gillis has signed so many depth players this year.

Our Backup goalie would be Lack and it doesn't take a lot to Re-sign those UFAs or RFAs. We probably won't even sign have of those contracts and don't forget that Malhotra's $2.5 million contract still counts for this year.


I don't expect Lack to be the starter after missing an entire season of development...maybe mid-season he gets the call but i would be surprised if he was here to start. Also Raymond your probably looking at $3 million. Higgins maybe a cut at $1.5. Schroder would get the min 10% raise i assume.

The point is we have to improve this team, sure we can bring everyone back and minus an opening spot where Booth was but then your looking at a really low salary there and Schroder as our 3rd line center i guess. A very weak team and no improvement whatsoever.. Yes im just thrilled.

That makes no sense... You trade those guys, they still have to be replaced by someone else.. The point of the game is to improve. Not status quo.

There is a bit of optimism though. Raymond will/should probably walk. Booth, Luongo, and Ballard all need to go. Re-sign what the team needs. Potentially, hope for Jensen or a Connauton to jump in. Will be able to afford one of the 3 needs - puck mover, 3rd liner, 2nd line scorer. Then wait for deadline to make any more necessarily adjustments. Hope for Kassian to be more consistent.

Most is already set.

Sedin Sedin Burrows

Hansen XXXX Kassian

I can't say im thrilled with Higgins on the 2nd line. I don't want to see Schroeder as our 3rd line center, wonder if they would try him at center and Kesler on the wing..Still an open spot for another top six guy. Otherwise that looks about right. I can say i wouldn't be terribly upset if Raymond left..altho some ppl around here sure would.

Also think our top priorities should be signing/or trading for a proven top six forward, 3rd line center and a stay at home RH D. May need to move a big salary D-man to get that forward.

with the Salary cap going down next year. Even getting rid of Ballard/Booth/Luongo isn't going to get you too much cap space. If you want anything done, you have to move a big contract. The Twins/Kesler.


twins-kesler-burrows-bieksa-hamhuis-tanev-Schneider= UNTOUCHABLE :) in other words move anyone on the team other then this core and were fine
