Bold moves for our success

Recommended Posts

I believe that all the following trades are reasonable and should be done to keep this team competitive for years to come even after the twins are gone.


Luongo or Schneider (5.3 / 4.0m)

Keith Ballard (4.2m)

Rights to Jordan Schroeder (only if they take Lu. If they want Schneider they don’t get Schroeder and they throw in a 2nd and 3rd rounder)


John Carlson (3.97m)

Braden Holtby (1.85m)

Troy Brower (2.35m)


Alex Edler

Alex Burrows

2013 1st rounder


Steve Downie

2013 1st overall pick (Nathan Makinnon)


David Booth

Braden Holtby


There 3, 2nd rounders in this years draft

So with all this said and done we have addressed needs as well as freed up cap space. Not that I don’t like Booth or Ballard but they are necessary pieces for all this to happen.

So all of this leaves us with about 11.7m in cap space, the 1st overall pick, four 2nd rounders and two 3rd rounders along with the rest of our picks in the round four through seven.

Players to resign

Maxim Lapierre 1.0m

Tom Sestito .5m

Dale Weise .5m

Chris Tanev 1.0m

Andrew Alberts 1.0m

All of these are one year contract with the selling point that the cap will be going up following next year so hence they will get more the following year if resigned

UFA signings

Bryan Bickell 2.4m

Viktor Stalberg 2.4m

Identical three year contracts so as not to insult them but give us room to keep competitive as well as giving them the chance for another raise.

My Custom Lineup


Daniel Sedin ($6.100m) / Henrik Sedin ($6.100m) / Zack Kassian ($0.870m)

Chris Higgins ($2.500m) / Ryan Kesler ($5.000m) / Jannik Hansen ($1.350m)

Troy Brouwer ($3.667m) / Nathan Makinnon ($2.850m) / Steve Downie ($2.650m)

Bryan Bickell ($2.400m) / Maxim Lapierre ($1.000m) / Viktor Stalberg ($2.400m)

Tom Sestito ($0.500m) / Dale Weise ($0.500m)


Dan Hamhuis ($4.500m) / Kevin Bieksa ($4.600m)

Jason Garrison ($4.600m) / John Carlson ($3.967m)

Chris Tanev ($1.000m) / Frank Corrado ($0.599m)

Andrew Alberts ($1.000m) /


Roberto Luongo ($5.333m)

Eddie Lack ($0.750m)


CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)

(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)

SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $64,236,111; BONUSES: $0

CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $63,889

Every player in our bottom six all have the capability to step up into another role if a injury happens to our top six not leaving us to wonder where the scoring is going to come from. These moves allow us to stockpile our farm system and not have to rush anyones development. So in the end if players decide to retire or just move on in a couple of years we have the assets to jump into our lineup.
