Follow these Rules. I want to see what people do if this ends up being the scenario.

1. Hudler is gone, via trade or offer-sheet
2. Hossa leaves for free agency, and doesn't return
3. Draper, Maltby, and Homer will not be traded.
4. Helm is on the team. Abdelkader is not.
5. Howard is back-up. End of story.
6. Lilja goes on LTIR.
7. Go with an even cap number of $57M (a 300k improvement).
8. Keep in mind you need to budget for a 13th forward and a 7th Dman.



Datsyuk (6.7)
Zetterberg (6.08)
Franzen (3.95)
Cleary (2.8) NTC
Holmstrom (2.25)
Filppula (3)
Maltby (.88)
Helm (.59)
Draper (1.58) NTC

Kronwall (3)
Lidstrom (7.45)
Rafalski (6) NTC
Lebda (.65)
Meech (.48)
Stuart (3.75) NTC
Lilja (1.25 - salary exempt)
Ericsson (.9)

Osgood (1.4)
Howard (.71)

Total: $52.17M (4.83M in space)

Perhaps Kindl could fill the D spot.

Sign a gritty forward.

Ok, I'd try to sign either Knuble or LaRose and then see if I can get Numminen on a one year contract.

"A" gritty forward? That's nine forwards listed there, people. It's gonna take more than Mike Knuble or Chad LaRose to reach a team you can put on the ice, unless of course you are Mike Keenan.

So, we're dogpiling on the goalie sammy Hudler the defense the refs league bias against us coaching now? Ok.

Holland has stated several times Kindl is not NHL ready yet.

I'm a huge supporter of bringing in Lappy.

Just out of curiosity, why Kopecky? I'd rather see Downey play 2 minutes a game, give some extra shifts to guys like Helm and Leino, and call it a day then suffer through 8 minutes a night of Kopecky. And I'm not even a Downey fan.

Well, I have no real preference, but it seems Babcock would rather play Kopecky then Downey. I wouldn't mind seeing Downey at all. I just overlooked Downey more than anything.

Re-sign Downey. Dont care about the rest tbh. Another fighter like Lappy wouldnt go a miss though biggrin.gif

(And before anyone tries an enforcer argument with me, I like having an enforcer on the team cos fights aref****** awesome and I want more of them.)

One key problem with the premise of this thread: No way in hell (yes, I'll say it again, No way in hell) we lose Hudler AND Hossa.

Either we find a miracle way to keep both or one of them is gone and the other stays. There is absolutely no way Holland let's both walk and ends up behind the 8 ball.
