I've pretty much just looked through a list of the upper-scoring wingers, and narrowed the choices down to those who are on presently-hopeless teams. I couldn't be f*cked to look at contract status, etc. Anyway, here it is--comments, please.

Clark
Semin
Guerin
Knuble
Zubrus
Doan
Frolov
Murray (unlikely)
Gagne
Nolan
Nagy


I can't for the life of me figure out how the Caps could manage to keep all of Ovechkin, Clark, Semin and Zubrus when they haven't gotten to the postseason in years and probably won't this year either.

I also doubt that the Coyotes will keep both Doan and Nagy.

Samsonov?
He wants out of Montreal.
This year had some problem but he can be a good player if he wants!

Samsonov was waived by Montreal yesterday. For what he brings, his contract is to big for the wings would want.

I'd add Bertuzzi to the list...
and most certainly Fedotenko.

Classic case of "contract to big", "player to small."

Knuble signed an extension with the Flyers earlier this season. With all the murmers of the Flyers having a fire-sale at the trade deadline, Knuble's name hasn't been mentioned as one that would be traded. Gagne would be the more likely choice.

Semin or Gagne are definitely not available. There is a decent chance doan will re-sign

I'd add Tkachuk, Sturm, Roberts, Gelinas, Nagy.

Once we get closer to the deadline there will be more and more sellers by then. I think its safe to say that there are 7 teams at the moment who are in that position so far.

I don't think Zubrus will go anywhere. He plays with Ovechkin.

I perused the stats charts for RW/LW on NHL.com, and picked those players near the top who play on bad teams.

Tkachuk is nowhere near the top. 13 goals, or some such.

Samsonov is not there for obvious reasons, and Bertuzzi's injury problems have kept him off the list.

gimme a rental like Guerin or Tkachuk. a playoff proven veteran who can score goals in playoffs, provide leadership and be a hardass when necessary.

add a gritty 4th liner who can hit and agitate but stays out of the box (well... mostly) and I'm fine

keep the rest of the team intact, try our chances in this playoffs but keep focus on development of youth for next seasons



if there's however any chance for Wings to sign Tucker I'd say: go for it. gonna be painful to watch him in Winged Wheel but if we get to WCF the pain will definitely cease smile.gif

absolutely, someone who can play with lang and cleary on the 2nd line that can leave us with 2 very good scoring lines.

Decent idea.. the Coyotes have a harvest of useful, cheap players.

Nolan, I think, wouldn't be much of a go for a scoring winger, though he's having a decent year-- one must consider that we're dealing with a relatively full roster already. Williams is expendable, and we have Sammy's slot to fill--- but nothing beyond that.

Nagy is only a $3m committment--hence $1m for us--and is only on a one-year contract right now.
Laraque would cost us $450K, and also holds a one-year contract. We'd stand a good chance of keeping him if we wanted to. I'd LOOOOOOOVE to see that guy here.

Doan, of course, is also only about $3m, though I don't know the status of his contract beyond this season.

I think the cost of feeding him would put us above the cap.
