Trade deadline longshots

Rate this topic

9 posts in this topic

We have five mil to work with in salary this season, but next season, assuming we do not plan on resigning Lang, we will likely have over nine mil (assuming a cap increase) work with for additions to next years roster. While Datsyuk and Schneider will likely require additional funds if we choose to retain them, there is tons of room in the wings payroll to absorb some salary from players aquired via trade this year.

While I am sure that we will have a good chunk of than ready to put towards the UFA market next summer, it seems the wings are well suited to go after some players with a few years to go on their contracts instead of the UFA rental. We have heard all the big UFA names on the market, but what teams or players are looking to gid rid of salary or have overstayed their welcome?

I have the suspicion that whoever, if anyone, we acquire at the deadline will be somewhat unexpected. So if your were going to go big, drop a roster player or some draft picks on a non-rental, who would or could it be?

Let's go with Sidney Crosby. We'll pay the Pens $10 mill straight-up for contract rights, then offer the Kid the idea of us paying off his $15 mill room service bill from Ovechkin.
