this ^ is kind of what i was thinking. 

 

I think we should try to sign Marky at a reasonable term. I don't want Marky at 5-6 years tho. So if e..g, a team like Calgary throws 6.5 x 6 at him I think we should walk from that, and pair Demko with an older veteran on a 1 or 2 year deal. 

 

In the meantime, we do as @aGENT suggested and really improve the d group. 

 

Really though, I think he ends up under a pretty reasonable +/- $5.5 x 4 deal.

 

From there, the team has to decide who else stays and goes. Some of which of course depends on how the league decides to address the revenue/cap issue.

 

From there, do we move Stecher's rights or can we re-sign him for something near $2m? Trade any of Benn, Roussel, Sutter or Baer (some likely with retention or in Baer's case, buyout)? Do we bring Tanev back or make a trade for a younger D to play with Hughes longer term and apply his cap there? Can we re-sign Toffoli?

 

There's a lot up on the air there. Hopefully the next week or so there's more clarity on the league's plans and then the real fun begins.

Do we have cap space? Since that’s kind of the issue with a few dead contracts. 

That's to be determined on what happens with compliance buyouts and/or JB's ability to ship out dead contracts.

 

A lot of what we're arguing about hinges on it. We could get a couple buyouts then we can re-sign everyone and sign a D. We could not get anything and not ship out everyone and lose out on two of Tanev, Toffoli and Marky.

 

So we will see what happens eventually.

Would definitely be the most ideal of situations if we can re-sign everyone and have enough to add a solid top 6 D. A top 6 with Boeser/Toffoli and a Dillion/Edmundson in the top 6 to play with a Tryamkin? That's mouth drooling to think about. 

 

I for sure want to see us improve and take another step forward next year if possible.
