Recommended Posts

to van: malone, garon, det 1st, tb 2nd

to tb: luongo, sauve, 2nd

van gets a power forward(kinda) and a additional 1st round pick

tb gets a great goalie, a d prospect and a pick

to van: dal 2012 2nd + 4th

to dal: raymond, alberts

dal gets a young winger to get a younger team like they want and a depth defencman

van gets decent draft picks

to NYI: ballard

to van: NYI 3rd + mid level prospect

van unloads ballard's contract for draft pick and a prospect

NYI gets a top 4 defencman

send kassian down to the minors.

let jensen-schroeder-kassian develop some chemistry for a year or 2


salo 1 year 1.5mill

pahlsson 2 years 2mill per

moen 2 years 1.75mill per

gragnani, rome 3 years 800 000 per

weise, ebbett, volpatti 2 years 650 000per

allen 3 years 2.4mill per

schneider 5 years 3.5mill per


*assuming the players i drafted are still available by the 23rd and 26th spot

-wth Detroit's pick we draft D Olli Maatta 23rd overall(solid defenseman, big 6'2 198lbs, needs to work on skating and point shot)

-with our pick we draft C Colton Sissions 26th overall(gritty 6'1 189lbs center. captain of his team in the OHL. replace shroeder on the center depth chart if he is brought up to the NHL soon)

let them develop for a couple of years wait for people from our roster to be moved or retire to step up

roster next year

1st line: sedin sedin burrows(skill line produces consistently)

2nd line: malone kesler booth(hard hitting line with a lot of skill. just need to develop chemistry)

3rd line A:moen pahlsson hansen(great checking line. fast and reliable)

3rd line B:higgins lapierre malholtra (another checking line with offense and grit)

Spares: weise, ebbett volpatti

1st paring: bieksa hamhuis(great shutdown guys, that can score)

2nd paring: allen edler(big gritty line. both allen and edler are good at hitting)

3rd paring: salo tanev(reliable paring. salo can mentor tanev untill he retires)

spares: Rome, Gragnani

schneider(great goalie as we all know)

garon(reliable backup. dont think lack is just ready yet. maybe another year with the AHL)

cap space: roughly 850 000 remaining

solid team great depth .bigger and grittier

i believe this would happen in the offseason. maybe not signing moen but thats what should happen

Very realistic. Something like this could happen.

I would be dissapointed though if Bryan Allen and Ryan Malone were expected to take this team to the next level. Hopefully Gillis will try to get a little more creative than this.

Why will Allen. Pahlsson and Salo sign here for significant pay cuts?

I suspect that TB will not give up two first rounders in the package to get Liongo. They might give up one, and it would likely be the lower of the two.

Dallas probably doesn't need Raymond as they already have Benn, Ericksson, Morrow, Nystrom and Ott on the left wing.

As a salary dump, the Ballard trade does the job, however, I suspect that Ballard can get a greater return.

Higgins as a 4th liner is a waste of talent. You may as well trade him for something (pick/prospect).

I see the defense is a bit bigger, but not necessarily better.
