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.

"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.

Perhaps Kindl could fill the D spot.

Sign a gritty forward.

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

I'm a huge supporter of bringing in Lappy.

1. Try to re-sign Sammy for 1.9 (Even though he would make much more on the open market)

2. Attempt to bring back Bertuzzi for 1.4

3. Kopecky re-signs for 500K

4. Re-sign Leino for 900K

Salary comes to a total $4.7 Million

Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Holmstrom

Cleary-Filppula-Franzen

Leino-Helm-Sammuelson

Maltby-Draper-Bertuzzi

Kopecky

Lidstrom-Rafalski

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 :D

(And before anyone tries an enforcer argument with me, I like having an enforcer on the team cos fights are ******* 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.

Whatever happen to Mattias Ritola? I thought we'd see him in a Wings uniform by now.

Chad LaRose is a great addition for the price and the grit he provides. He's good for a few goals too. I like that call Wasabi.

Don't forget that Leino's going to be in too. So we've got one more spot open.

Let's say LaRose gets 1.2 million and Leino gets 1 million.

Meech is traded off for whatever we can get in picks or 'project' prospect (something that's suited to the Wings given how long they season their prospects).

So we've got 3.1 million left over. In that case we don't dump Hudler at all and sign him to a deal just like Filppula's. I'd say he'd be happy with the equivalent deal to Val.

But you're being difficult and making me follow rules here...

So sign Pahlsson to a 3 year deal at 2.4 million a season.

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Cleary

Franzen-Filppula-Leino

Pahlsson-Helm-Holmstrom

Maltby-Draper-LaRose

Lidstrom-Rafalski

Kronwall-Stuart

Ericsson-Lebda

Osgood

Howard

LTR: Lilja

And we're carrying 700,000 in fun bucks.

Now the problem is that we'd have to dump Lebda before bringing Lilja back into the line-up. And of course, once Lilja is in there's not enough cap space for an injury call-up.

I'm conflicted here. Let me rethink it.

I love this roster. It's not too unrealistic either, if Komisarek wouldn't mind playing on the third pairing.

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.

Using your scenario, here's what I came up with:

Re-sign Downey to a two-way deal for 500k

Re-sign Ville Leino for 1 million, he gets a permanent roster spot

Sign Joel Ward from Nashville for 750k cap hit

Trade Meech and draft picks/prospects to Tampa Bay for Evgeny Artyukhin (1 year left on his contract at 950k)

Here's the numbers:

Forwards

Datsyuk 6,700,000

Zetterberg 6,083,333

Franzen 3,954,545

Filppula 3,000,000

Cleary 2,800,000

Holmstrom 2,250,000

Draper 1,583,333

Leino 1,000,000

Artyukhin 950,000

Maltby 883,333

Ward 750,000

Helm 599,444

Defensemen

Lidstrom 7,450,000

Rafalski 6,000,000

Stuart 3,750,000

Kronwall 3,000,000

Lilja* 1,250,000

Ericsson 900,000

Lebda 650,000

Goalies

Osgood 1,416,666

Howard 716,666

Roster Size 21

Salary Cap $56,700,000

Payroll $55,687,320

Cap Room $1,012,680

*if Lilja does go on LTIR, then call up Kindl to be the 7th defenseman.

Here's what my lines look like:

Datsyuk/Zetterberg/Cleary

Leino/Filppula/Franzen

Artyukhin/Helm/Ward

Maltby/Draper/Holmstrom

Lidstrom/Rafalski

Kronwall/Stuart

Ericsson/Lilja

Lebda

With this lineup, we get a black guy to shoot the knuclepuck for soultrain :P

(I tried a scenario where we re-sign Hudler and add either Neil or Laperierre, and the only way I could make it work was to sign Hudler at 2 million and Laperierre at 1.4 million, but I had to cut Leino loose.)
