Relyt Krets Posted May 21, 2015 Share Posted May 21, 2015 Just a couple ideas that I think are realistic and would like to see. At least close. First off let Mathias and Richardson walk. Richardson has injury woes and Mathias cause of the cap crunch. I wouldn't re sign Wener but I know JB wants to. But this proposal will tell you why we shouldn't. Van-Buf Higgins (2.5M) and rights to B.McMillan for M.Foligno (1.875M) Higgins can be a leader on a rebuilding Sabres team. McMillan never really fit in and with the future I don't see him fitting in either. Foligno is 6'4" and can fit in the bottom six well. Also has potential I think and can be top 6. Saves us some cap as well Van-Ott Bieksa (4.5M cap hit 2.5M paid salary) for 2nd Rd pick Dallas or There own Hate to see Bieksa go but he is taking up a big chunk of cap. Trade him for one of the 2nd rounder Ottawa has and he can be a leader and retire in his home province. Nothing but a cap dump. Van-SJ Miller(6.0M) , rights to Vey, and '17 1st for Tennyson (625K) and '15 1st (9th) Gunna have people not like this but we are in good hands with Lack. And why not try to use Miller and the fact SJ needs a goalie and try to get the 9th overall pick and get a decent player out of it and have 2 first rounders. I think it can happen so why not try something along these lines. They get a pick in 2017 and who knows it could be better. Low risk high reward and I think Lack proved himself. Vey never fit in really either and we have players who could beat him for a spot. Van-Mtl Burrows (4.5M) and Jensen (870K) for L.Eller (3.5M) and '15 3rd Half cap dump half hockey trade. I honestly do not see Jensen panning out. He continues to struggle and not produce like we all saw. He has been also jumped on the depth chart and a change may bode well for him. Burrows has a chance to go for a cup on a very good Habs team. Also can fill the hole Eller would leave. Eller is 25 and needs a change of scenery. Good player and can have the Danish connection with Hansen. Can be top six or bottom. But room to grow and physical. Van-Wsh Vrbata (5.0M) and Kassian (1.75M) for M.Bowey (695K) and '15 3rd Not sure how this will be taken. BUT hear me out. Wsh needs so,some who can score besides Ovechkin. Barbara can fill that void and why not take advantage of his good year. Kassian may not even need to be added to this or maybe we ask for there 1st this year and have 3 picks if the SJ trade happened. Wsh would get a scorer and another beater and banger which could help them over that hump. We get a highly touted prospect in Bowey who is supposed to be very good. Seen him live and Kelowna and he is well worth it. Also this summer, sign C.Franson and M.Green. Both to AAV 5.5M if possible. Both right handed shots. Both under 20 still and both can help our PP which we definitely need. We save some cap with the trades. Would give us a solid d core and have us set to draft and develope for a few years.
