What remaining UFA'S would you like to have on are team?


Recommended Posts

OUR team.....

Could use Hainsey or Boyes, maybe LaRose , Sellanne, Morrow, Cleary, Mueller, Brunner, Maybe Steckel.

Any of those would be ok, but in all honesty I think we could jump in for forward depth more so than defensive as we've defensive help that can jump in fairly seamlessly where as our forward depth is still so young and raw

My opinion only

I like Hainsey, but I think he has a lot of options and may want bigger minutes than he's likely to see here.

Most realistically - I'd want Steckel as a faceoff/shutdown option for the fourth line - and he'd be a reasonable cap hit.

Latendresse may be another good depth option.

The other option - of holding onto that cap space and seeing what opens up as teams with no leverage have to shed cap - is pretty attractive. There's likely to be some pretty sweet cap dump deals as things heat up....

I think Brendan Morrow would be a good veteran presence and a guy who can play throughout the lineup. He probably won't score over 20 goals but I still think he has enough offensive ability for top 6 spot duty, especially with Booth likely not starting the season. He fills in offensive holes and in a healthy lineup he can move down to the Richardson line making us a four line team (I think Weise can plug 11 or 12 minutes per night).

As of right now, the lineup looks something like this:

Sedin Sedin Kassian

Burrows Kesler Hansen

Booth - Schroeder - Higgins

Santorelli - Richardson - Weise

Sestito

Edler - Garrison

Hamhuis - Bieksa

Weber - Tanev

Alberts

Luongo

Lack

It seems like the team is set and the only possible changes could come from youth impressing the staff. If we signed Mueller to a bargain deal, having a forward corps like this seems excessive:

Sedin Sedin Kassian 18 minutes

Booth Kesler Mueller 17 minutes

Burrows Schroeder Hansen 13 minutes

Higgins Richardson Santorelli 12 minutes

Doesn't seem to shabby.

Offense on every line and amazing forward depth.

I'd say sign Meuller cause he'd come cheap compared to someone like Brunner.
