Improve our bottom 6

Recommended Posts

Sign Marty Reasoner 1 Year / 1 mil

Sign Jamie Langenbrunner 1 Year / 600k

Both players come cheap and a lot of experience and leadership. Reasoner turns our 3rd line into an actual checking line, and Langenbrunner makes our 4th line not suck.


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

David Booth ($4.250m) / Ryan Kesler ($5.000m) / Alexandre Burrows ($4.500m)

Chris Higgins ($2.500m) / Marty Reasoner ($1.150m) / Jannik Hansen ($1.350m)

Dale Weise ($0.750m) / Brad Richardson ($1.150m) / Jamie Langenbrunner ($0.900m)

Tom Sestito ($0.750m) /


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

Alexander Edler ($5.000m) / Chris Tanev ($1.500m)

Jason Garrison ($4.600m) / Frank Corrado ($0.599m)

Andrew Alberts ($0.600m) / Yannick Weber ($0.650m)


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: $63,502,778; BONUSES: $0

CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $797,222

Line 1: If Kassian has a breakout season then this line will be an absolute beast. Finally the Sedins with a mean Power Forward.

Line 2: Burrows and Kesler already have a lot of chemistry and if Booth bounces back then we have a very nice 2nd line that can kill you in both ends.

Line 3: Higgins and Hansen are both 2-Way players that can put up points and Reasoner is solid checking center that will help us win faceoffs. Could be an effective shutdown line.

Line 4: Richardson is a reliable center here that could move up to the 3rd when injuries occur. Weise isn't bad, I wouldn't mind seeing someone else there though. Langenbrunner is old but could definitely still be effective. 4th line is a solid energy line.

Pair 1: I don't know why we ever split Hamhuis and Bieksa up, they work well together.

Pair 2: Tanev is still improving and his calm defensively reliable style of play could perfectly compliment Edler.

Pair 3: Garrison is definitely a top 4 D-Man, but I think Corrado could really benefit from playing with him. Also putting Garrison on the 3rd pair allows us to give Tanev more ice time.

In net we got Luongo who I believe will have a really good year (think like 2007-08). Backing him up we got Lack or Eriksson who will be awesome in the future (I think Eriksson will develop into a beast and be our next starter after Luongo retires/declines.)
