[Proposal] Roster framework for next year

Recommended Posts

Hansen + Higgins to a team for a similar player, let's say Troy Brouwer

- free's up a roster spot by trading away 2 redundant players for 1 similar player also allowing a youngster to become a regular.

Edler(+?) for 2nd line playmaking/dynamic LW or C for Kesler

- seems Linden trusts the core and Kesler is part of it. Won't be going anywhere at the start of the new season so give him what he's lacked for majority his career. And when he had the linemate (fringe ones in Samuelsson, Sundin, and Demitra) in the past, he's produced.


Santorelli 2 years @ $1.5 mill per. Tanev 3 years @ $3 mill per. Schroeder 1 year deal @ $1 mill. Andrej Meszaros/Matt Niskanen 3/4 years @ $4.5 mill per. Brian Elliott 2 years @ $2.5 mill. Ron Hainsey 1 year @1.5 mill.


Dank - Hank - Burrows

trade - Kesler - Kassian

Brouwer - Santorelli - Jensen

Matthias - Richardson - Sestito


Hamhuis - Bieksa

Meszaros/Niskanen - Tanev

Garrison - Stanton

Hainsey, Weber



Minors you have the other young guns developing and possible call-ups when injuries will inevitably occur.

I really believe one of Gaunce or Horvat will make the team next year. Santo will be playing everywhere cause he's so versatile. Hansen and Booth gone. Higgins stays. Edler hopefully is gone in a trade for Subban (I have a dream..)
