For whatever reason,if Bert isn't re-signed,anyone have a wish list?Guys right off the top of my head are:

Owen Nolan
Mike Comrie
Colby Armstrong
Alexander Steen (If not re-signed by St.Louis.I believe he's an RFA)
Arron Asham (Maybe he could play a 3rd line role.Won't put up as many points as Bert,but more gritty and defensively responsible)
David Clarkson (If not re-signed by New Jersey.he's got offensive potential)

With Hudler coming back I expect Bert (or FA signing) to play mostly 3rd line minutes.

Thoughts?Suggestions??

I went on and on how we should sign Mike Comrie last year instead of Jason Williams...I stand by my decision and I still think we should sign him. Hes put up good numbers playing on, to be honest, god awful teams (49 points in 76 games for the 2008 Islanders). I reckon he could do better with a skilled team like Detroit.

That would be instead of Bertuzzi. Id still like to see Asham or Winchester signed for the 4th line as well to complete a pretty impressive roster.

Comrie + Asham/Winchester could potentially cost a cap hit of around $2m +/- a few $100k. Sorted, yeh? I know. I should be a GM.


edit: I used the "£" sign instead of "$" :ph34r:

Look for Asham to get a salary raise this season, I don't think Holland would like to sign him for the kind of money he is looking for, if he isn't already re-signing in Philly.


It is still possible , he only had a cap hit of 0.640 last season...maybe he'll be looking to crack a mill this year.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing.  The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Comrie or Nolan instead of Bertuzzi would be fine with me.My list of players I'd like to have for our 4th line is so long it isn't even funny.

Same here :hehe:

Asham is top of the list because hes an exciting fighter who can play hockey and put up decent numbers. As for the poster above saying he'll get a huge payrise; negative. He's 32 and had had more productive seasons than this one past and his pay has slowly declined from $950k in 2007 to the $640k it is now. If it goes up, it wont be by much.

Bet I can produce a longer list,with only free agents (RFA & UFA) :P

As for Asham,I don't see him making a mil,but he'll have teams lining up.

I see some of the names being thrown out for 4th line guys and it's pretty ridiculous. You never pay more than 1 million for a 4th liner and I'm seeing guys like Asham and other players who would command 1.5 and more as a fourth liner. This isn't NHL the video game where you can turn the cap on or off.

I like Asham too, but an even more appealing option (though maybe not for the price) could be ANDREW LADD. He's an RFA, Chicago can't keep him... maybe his rights can be had for the pick we got for Ville.

I'd like Ladd for the 3rd line instead of Bert.

Besides Asham, who was suggested as a third liner in this thread, who are these ridiculous suggestions you are talking about?

I havent seen one person mentioned for the 4th line that seems ridiculous here at all. in fact, its been pretty realistic if not completely realistic.

Ladd sounds great instead of bringing back Bert, Armstrong is the next best suggestion I would say. I don't see us getting Clarkson, Nolan is pretty damn old, no to Steen and Comrie I wouldn't hate but wouldn't love as a signing.

Oh brilliant. Someone brings up the NHL video game for some original hilarity.

How in the hell is Asham going to command a salary TRIPLE to $1.5m? He'll be lucky to make a mil. You should read my earlier post about how Asham is 32, wasn't anywhere near his career best season and has had his salary decline over the past 3 seasons despite point production increasing.

Why not try for Guerin if not bertuzzi i know he was a penguin but he ain't a bad player and with his age he would fit right into this locker room. Not my top choice but it could be possible i guess. Of course he might want too much too. Overall i would have to take winchester because he is pretty sweet and his last name is awsome too.

If Bert doesn't re-sign (and I'm hoping he doesn't) I would much rather have Owen Nolan anyways. He still has a pretty decent shot, he's a righty, which could be helpful on the powerplay.

Yes.his price tag is too much.

Agreed.I think Nolan is a more well-rounded player and a better fit as a 3rd liner.
